Research Interests:
My focus is on risky health behaviors among emerging adults, particularly college student drinking. My interest is in exploring the etiology of heavy episodic drinking as well as developing techniques to strengthen and extend effects for interventions directed at harm reduction.  Specifically, I am interested in identifying technology-based techniques easily adoptable at institutions for mass implementation.  I am also interested in socio-cognitive influences of health, particularly how changes in drinking influence and are influenced by social networks and romantic partnerships.  Additionally, I am interested in quantitative methods, with a focus on longitudinal data analysis.
