Dr. Carlos Gallo’s research aims to facilitate the implementation of evidence based programs (EBPs) by local agencies, particularly those addressing health inequities in LGBT and ethnic minority populations. Dr. Gallo is interested in developing computational methods that monitor implementation indicators and provide real-time feedback useful for health care providers and funding agencies. He has successfully applied his background in systems engineering and computational linguistics to improving parent-training preventive interventions, such as Familias Unidas and New Beginning Programs.
