My graduate students work closely together although they represent a range of interests within the area of addictive behaviors. Each student proposes and conducts a master’s thesis, an interim project, and dissertation. They also coordinate and contribute to many ongoing studies in the lab. They are highly productive in presenting research at conferences such as Society for Research on Nicotine & Tobacco, Society of Behavioral Medicine, College on Problems of Drug Dependence, and Association for Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy.
Weekly lab meeting with my graduate students and undergraduate research assistants provide the opportunity to discuss relevant literature and our ongoing projects.
Examples of current studies include:
Brief Motivational Enhancement for Smokers with provision of health feedback (e.g., pulmonary lung functioning) for socioeconomically disadvantaged smokers
Brief Alcohol Intervention for College Student Problem Drinkers and Mandated Drinkers
Cigarette Smoking's Relation to Dimensional Models of Eating Disorders: Drive for Thinness vs. Fear of Fatness
Smoking Topography and Smoking Outcome Expectancies in Women Smokers over the Course of the Menstrual Cycle
Predictors of Heavy Drinking and Alcohol-Related Problems among Undergraduates
