She is currently the PI on a Centers for Medicare and Medicaid grant to examine uses of information technology to provide consultative services for women and children in rural Michigan; and to link academic child psychiatrists to primary care physicians in Kalamazoo, Grand Traverse and Crawford Counties. Collaborative relationships with numerous primary care and community mental health sites throughout the state are now established. Her investigative team has developed an IT platform for collection of information from PCP’s throughout the state (Michigan Depression Outcomes and Collaborative Care), a network of CMH collaborators, and infrastructure for expansion of telepsychiatric services in northern counties.

She has worked on several NIH-funded research projects including a project to examine the impact of treatments in pregnancy and postpartum and impact on maternal and child outcomes. She served as a co-investigator on a large NIH trial (STAR*D) to understand pharmacologic and therapeutic outcomes in depression management.
