Research Interests:
 
My focus is on risky health behaviors among emerging adults, particularly heavy episodic alcohol use by college students. My interest is in exploring the etiology of risk behaviors 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.  Additionally, I am interested in quantitative methods, specifically longitudinal data analysis and approaches to accommodate substance use outcomes (particularly structural equation modeling).
