      Collapse Overview
      Trained as an epidemiologist, Dr. Riley is interested in how clinical and behavioral factors converge to influence health. Her community-based research focuses on co-morbidities and competing risks in very low-income populations, with an emphasis on housing instability and associated conditions. She works with a team of multidisciplinary investigators and postdoctoral fellows on a research program that includes “Polysubstance Use and Health Outcomes Evaluation” (PULSE). PULSE investigates the combined influences of substances (medications, illicit drugs and licit drugs), as well as HIV, on the cardiac health of homeless women. The goal of the study is to provide clinical tools for risk assessment in order to reduce mortality in this population. The goal of her overall program is to inform health care delivery and prepare junior investigators for careers in patient-oriented research.
