Dr. Hochstatter is an epidemiologist and health services researcher focused on the intersecting epidemics of substance use disorders, infectious diseases, and criminal justice involvement. Her research aims to improve the understanding and health of disadvantaged populations with substance use disorder using mixed-methods, social network strategies, and health services intervention approaches. She has worked on several NIDA-funded projects, including studies that aim to: understand barriers and facilitators along the HIV and hepatitis C care continuums among criminal justice-involved adults; reduce risk behaviors and increase health care utilization among people with substance use disorders using mobile-health technology and computer-tailored interventions; and detect and describe hepatitis C transmission networks using molecular epidemiological surveillance data. Dr. Hochstatter completed her MPH and PhD in Population Health Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine and Public Health and a postdoctoral fellowship in the HIV, Substance Abuse, and Criminal Justice T32 Fellowship Program at Columbia University. She is also an alumna of the Criminal Justice Research Training Program on Substance Use, HIV, and Comorbidities at Brown University.
