Research Interests

Talia grew up just outside of Boulder, Colorado and attended Oberlin College where she studied History and Gender, Sexuality, & Feminist Studies with a minor in Sociology. She later earned her M.P.H. in Sociomedical Sciences with a certificate in Social Determinants of Health from Columbia, where she trained in conducting qualitative and mixed-methods research. While in graduate school, she worked on a study focused on the shared drivers of HIV and overdose during the postpartum period, which combined her existing interests in gender, health, and patient-provider relationships with a newfound passion for substance use disorder (SUD) research. Following her graduate work, she contributed to studies related to changes in the opioid use disorder treatment landscape in New York State as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the role of organizational access points and criminal justice system involvement in SUD treatment utilization among Black women.

At FRI, Talia is working as a Research Associate under the mentorship of Dr. Karli Hochstatter on a portfolio of mixed-methods studies dedicated to improving the quality of fatal overdose surveillance data across New York City and State to better understand trends, identify areas for prevention/intervention, and ensure that the social networks of those who experience overdose have timely access to the support, resources, and services they need.
