Dr. Trevino's current research focuses on best practices for evidence synthesis workflows and sharing data and research findings in an accessible format. At the HEDCO Institute, she develops data science workflows, dynamic research reports, and interactive web apps to bridge the research-to-practice gap in education. At the Prevention Science Institute, she conducts statistical analyses, manages data, and builds interactive web apps for various research projects. She also prepares data and research materials for archiving, using privacy-preserving methods to de-identify large datasets before publishing them online.
