Bio: 

Trained as a psychiatric epidemiologist with specific research interests in global mental health, adolescent health, and substance and alcohol use. His research investigates the impacts of culture and migration on substance and alcohol use patterns and how these relationships are related to experienced trauma and co-occurring mental health problems. He has worked on these issues both globally among HIV and trauma-affected populations in low- and middle-income countries as well as domestically among refugee and immigrant populations living in the United States. Dr. Kane’s research program is centered on advancing this line of inquiry through collaborations with academic institutions, NGO’s, international organizations, and government agencies in an effort to elucidate: 1) the types and patterns of substance and alcohol use problems prevalent among these populations, 2) how substance and alcohol use are related to mental health, 3) appropriate methods for reliable and valid measurement of substance, alcohol, and mental health indicators, and 4) developing, testing, and sustaining culturally relevant intervention strategies.
