Research Interests:  While at Michigan, Dr. Wyse's research focused on vulnerable populations, particularly those involved with the justice system. In this research, she found that substance use disorders were extremely common, and a major contributor to individuals' criminal offending and reentry experiences. A research collaboration between a county jail and a substance use treatment program, to provide medications for opioid use disorder to inmates, led her to change course. Her emergent research focuses on the treatment of substance use disorders among vulnerable populations, and the ways in which evidence-based treatments for these disorders can be made more available to those who need them.
