Alli is a Clinical Research Coordinator for the Recovery Research Institute at Massachusetts General Hospital. She recently graduated summa cum laude from Trinity College, CT with a B.S. Honors in Psychology and a minor in Cognitive Science.
Alli is working on several projects with Dr. Bettina Hoeppner’s team such the NIDA- funded R34 grant to advance the science on Recovery Community Centers (RCCs) and NIH- funded R13 grant supporting career development seminars. Alli’s main projects include a NIH-funded R21 grant testing a smoking cessation mobile-health app for smokers living with HIV as well as a R01 randomized control trial for a smoking cessation app using a positive psychology framework, both of which are under review. She hopes to continue building her research career by pursing either a MS or PhD in Clinical Psychology or Experimental Psychology. Her research interests include leveraging mHealth technology to treat addictive behaviors, using biopsychosocial-spiritual models to understand addictive behaviors, and increasing access to recovery resources and treatment.
