Northwestern University

Dr. Becker is a licensed clinical psychologist and implementation scientist dedicated to bridging the gap between research and practice. Dr. Becker studies both patient-focused dissemination (e.g., direct-to-consumer marketing, technology-assisted interventions) and provider-focused implementation (e.g., multi-level implementation approaches, workforce development) strategies. The overarching objective of her work is to increase both the demand for and supply of effective treatments in community settings. She joined the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in 2022 as Inaugural Director of the Center for Dissemination and Implementation Science.
