We work with a variety of collaborators both inside and outside of academia. Our goal is to conduct research with the highest possible scientific rigor, while being inclusive of multiple perspectives and ensuring that our applied research has a strong potential to benefit our communities and be translated into effective policies and practices outside of the research setting.
