Mia is a Graduate Research Assistant at Center for Public Health Systems Science and a Doctoral Student in the Public Health Sciences Program. She comes to the Brown School from the University of Washington where she worked at Health Promotion Research Center, a CDC-funded Prevention Research Center housed in the Department of Health Services and on the Team Science Module of the Institute of Translational Health Sciences Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) Program. At our Center, Mia currently lends expertise on the multi-institutional National Cancer Institute grant, Advancing Science & Practice in the Retail Environment (ASPiRE) that leverages agent-based modeling to test the potential impact of targeted retail tobacco policies. She is continuing her CTSA work with the Washington University Institute for Clinical & Translational Sciences (ICTS) Team Science Module to improve team functioning, measure collaboration and its benefits, speed up the translation from discovery to dissemination, and ultimately find innovative solutions to the toughest problems facing public health and medicine.
