Biography

Cady Berkel is an associate research professor with the REACH Institute in the Department of Psychology at Arizona State University. She received her bachelor's from the George Washington University and doctorate from the University of Georgia. Berkel focuses on reducing health disparities (including substance use, mental health, HIV and other STIs, and obesity) through research on the dissemination and implementation of evidence-based programs. She studies the implementation of evidence-based programs in community settings, including healthcare and court systems. Her work evaluates implementation mechanisms that promote positive outcomes for programs delivered in community settings, through behavioral observations and machine learning. She also conducts basic research on risk (e.g., discrimination and poverty) and resilience (e.g., racial/ethnic socialization, identity, and cultural values) mechanisms associated with health disparities.
