Research Interests & Collaborators

I am primarily interested in identifying influential and underlying psychosocial predictors and consequences of substance use patterns among young adults using advanced statistical and methodological designs. These designs include diary diaries, ecological momentary assessments, and wearable technology. I have a particular interest in studying high-risk beverage use, namely alcohol combined with other substances (e.g., marijuana) and alcohol mixed with energy drinks. I primarily collaborate with Stephanie Lanza and Jennifer Maggs on this work.
