Personal profile

Research Interests

Research focuses on: 1) evaluating combination psychological and pharmacological treatments for tobacco dependence; 2) characterizing smoker- and treatment-related factors that influence smokers’ adherence to treatment and likelihood of quitting; and 3) developing an understanding though human laboratory and genetic epidemiologic studies of psychological, biological, and genetic factors that convey risk for smoking persistence. Primary end-point is to decrease risk of tobacco attributable disease through long-term smoking cessation.

Research Interests

Our research integrates multiple disciplinary approaches and methods, including human laboratory, clinical trial, epidemiological, and systematic review and meta-analysis, to delineate psychological and neurobiological factors that sustain cigarette smoking and nicotine dependence. The overarching goal of our research is to improve the treatment of nicotine dependence, especially for high tobacco burden clinical (e.g., cancer, depression) and community (e.g., low income, LGBT) populations.
