Graduate Student Researcher
900 Commonwealth Ave

Kristine Lee, B.A. is a doctoral student in the Clinical Psychology program at Boston University, working under the mentorship of Dr. Donna Pincus. Kristine has a research background in evidence-based practice/intervention development within the context of schools, implementation science, and addressing research-to-practice gaps in service utilization and access to mental health care for youth of color. Prior to her graduate studies at Boston University, Kristine was a Research Scientist Assistant at the University of Washington’s School Mental Health Assessment, Research, and Training (SMART) Center, a collaborative research center that designs and promotes evidence-based practices to meet the mental health needs of youth in education and community-based settings. 

Kristine is interested in pursuing research investigating how to achieve equitable implementation of evidence-based interventions, at the intersection of schools and mental health care, to better serve youth of color. She is also interested in addressing systemic and scientific inequities that contribute to gaps in access, engagement, and quality of mental health services, specifically for marginalized youth of color. Additionally, Kristine contributes to ongoing research projects through Child CARD, such as a PCORI funded multi-site pragmatic trial comparing the effectiveness of a face-to-face versus online CBT intervention for youth with anxiety in pediatric health care settings.
