I am a Professor of Social and Behavioral Science at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. I am a behavioral scientist with a strong track record of funded research in community-based approaches to cancer prevention in a variety of settings that serve disadvantaged populations, including low income housing and community health centers. My work targets a range of cancer risk factors, including nutrition, physical activity, sun exposure, tobacco and second-hand smoke exposure, and cancer screening. My research teams have included interdisciplinary perspectives on cancer risk reduction and health disparities, with a focus on multiple cancer risk behaviors and implementation of evidence-based interventions. I have a strong track record as a leader of large research grants, and as a mentor. I am a past recipient of a mid-career K award (1K05 CA124415-02, Dissemination Research to Reduce Cancer Disparities). My current work and writing focuses heavily on implementation science, particularly in community health settings, and I have been actively involved in national efforts to develop implementation research and training programs. Over my career, I received over $40M in research funding as PI from NIH, and supported about $20M in research grants as a co-PI or co-investigator. In 2013 I transitioned to full-time academic administrative positions; in September, 2018 I returned to my passion - community-based implementation research—and am currently rebuilding my research portfolio I currently serve as the Faculty Director of the Community Engagement Program for Harvard’s Clinical Translational Science Award, and which focuses on advancing evidence-based strategies to improve community health. I am the multi-PI of our recently renewed Cancer Prevention and Control Training Grant. I also serve on the Steering Committee for NCI’s Consortium for Implementation Science in Cancer (CISC), and on faculty for the Training Institute in Dissemination and Implementation Research in Cancer (TIDIRC).
