Dr. Williams is an Assistant Professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, School of Nursing. Her research focuses on the role of the healthcare system in identifying and responding to gender-based violence with a particular focus on elucidating disparities that exist in this process. Her work is facilitated through the application of community engagement methodology and dissemination and implementation science. Her research demonstrates how trauma and culture impact patient-provider communication and access to effective health services related to gender-based violence.

She has received funding for her work through numerous agencies including NIH, SAMHSA, and DOJ. She has also held leadership positions in two NIH-funded Centers of Excellence: the Center of Excellence for Health Disparities Research: El Centro (P60MD002266, PI Peragallo-Montano, Mitrani) and the Vanderbilt-Miami-Meharry Center of Excellence in Precision Medicine and Population Health (U54MD01072201, PI Wilkins).
