Dr. Haley is an Assistant Professor in the Boston University School of Public Health in the Department of Community Health Sciences. Her research expertise includes studying the social determinants of health, with a focus on how features of the social and built environment, especially health policies, create disparities in health and health care utilization among people with or at increased risk for HIV. She utilizes multilevel, geospatial, and qualitative methods to explore these topics.

She is the Principal Investigator or co-Investigator of several NIDA-funded studies, including a NIDA-funded career development award that will generate evidence on how health policies impact substance use and drug and alcohol treatment among women with and at risk of HIV in the US, and elucidate the pathways through which these policies shape HIV viral suppression among women with HIV. This research leverages participant-level data from the NIH-funded Women’s Interagency HIV Study by integrating cohort data with contextual data (e.g., Prescription Drug Abuse Policy System databases) capturing the policy and health care access environments where these women live. The proposed study uses a longitudinal, multilevel design to generate evidence on how health policies impact substance and drug and alcohol treatment among women with and without HIV in the US, and elucidate the pathways through which health policies shape HIV viral suppression among women with HIV.
