Trevor’s passion for research related to the intersections of addiction, mental health, and criminal justice developed during his undergraduate studies at Central Michigan University, where he introduced data-driven systems for program evaluation and development at an on-campus addiction recovery center. After returning to Detroit with a bachelor's in social work, he earned a master's in social work from Wayne State University, where he researched co-responder programs and led efforts to evaluate intimate partner violence prevention programs while working at HAVEN of Oakland County. His professional background focuses largely on program evaluation and development; data integration, management and analysis; and report generation. Above all, Trevor is most passionate about research that informs community systems change and improves outcomes for those in the criminal justice system.
