More About Me

About Me

I am an Assistant Professor of Medicine in the Center for Healthful Behavior Change located within the Division of General Internal Medicine at NYU School of Medicine. I am a behavioral scientist with an interest in understanding the mechanisms underlying racial disparities in cardiovascular health. My research focuses on examining the reasons for patients’ decision to adhere to prescribed anti-hypertensive medications and lifestyle behaviors, with emphasis on psychosocial factors such as depression, self-efficacy, and intrinsic motivation. I have worked in diverse settings from faith-based organizations and senior centers to community-based primary care practices, and have several years of experience delivering motivational interviewing as part of clinical trials as well as implementing treatment fidelity protocols to assess how well motivational interviewing is being delivered. Currently, I train lay health advisors to deliver motivational interviewing to their peers as part of a church-based trial targeting blood pressure reduction.
