Anne Fairlie, PhD

Personal Statement

My area of expertise is in the psychological, social, and environmental factors that influence young adult substance use, most notably alcohol and marijuana use, as well as associated negative consequences. In particular, I use different types of daily-level or ecological momentary assessment (EMA) designs to elucidate why and how substance use varies across different occasions for a given individual in relation to changes in cognitions and contextual characteristics. My program of research enhances our knowledge of the etiology of substance misuse to inform the refinement and development of interventions.

I serve as Principal Investigator (PI) of a grant from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism that examines unplanned heavy drinking, protective behavioral strategies, and alcohol-related consequences using daily surveys administered over eight consecutive weekends (NIAAA; R21AA024156). I also serve as Multiple PI of grant that will develop and test two personalized feedback interventions that incorporate awareness of alcohol cues and response to craving using an in vivo lab paradigm and daily surveys (NIAAA; R34AA027302; MPI Fairlie/Ramirez). Finally, I serve as Co-Investigator (Co-I) or data analyst on several additional NIH-funded studies examining alcohol, marijuana, and/or nonmedical use of prescription stimulants.
