Dr. Parker's research interests lie in the field of drug use epidemiology, how drug use and drug use disorders disproportionately affect vulnerable populations, and opportunities for public health strategies. Her focus is on identifying characteristics associated with opioid use at the population level with attention to developing hypotheses that lead to more efficacious interventions or treatment. She also has expertise in implementing tobacco regulatory science research on smokers with concurrent affective disorders, opioid use disorder, and socioeconomic disadvantage.
