Research Interests & Collaborators

My research focuses on understanding individual, social, and developmental factors related to substance use among adolescents and emerging adults. Using a combination of novel experimental/laboratory based and longitudinal methodologies, I examine predictors of momentary (e.g., craving), short-term (e.g., motives), and long-term (e.g., initiation) substance use outcomes, with a particular emphasis on stress/anxiety and peers. My primary collaborators are Ashley Linden-Carmichael and Stephanie Lanza.
