Research Interests & Collaborators

My specific research agenda seeks to understand how substance use, problem behaviors, and mental health outcomes manifest across time within the context of important proximal social environments. I examine these dynamic person-environment relationships with ecological momentary assessment (EMA) data and use statistical methods like time-varying effect modeling and multilevel modeling approaches to gain a greater understanding of both temporal dynamics and within-person processes. I collaborate with Michael Russell, H. Harrington Cleveland, and David Vandenbergh on this work.
