Jason Kilmer, PhD

Personal Statement

The focus of my research has primarily been the development, implementation, and evaluation of brief interventions and prevention efforts to reduce alcohol- and other drug-related harms among college students and other young adults. Professionally, I have more than 20 years of experience conducting research on substance abuse etiology and prevention with high school students, college students, and young adults. For many of our NIAAA- and NIDA-funded projects, I have played a significant part in intervention development for studies using personalized graphic feedback (delivered either in-person or on the web). I have a strong interest in efforts to bridge the gap between science and practice, including ways to bring empirically-supported approaches to scale, and always appreciate opportunities to teach, train, present, and put the spotlight on science.

Teaching Philosophy

​I approach teaching with enthusiasm for the material and the hope that I can excite students, trainees, and/or workshop participants about the content as well. My philosophy about teaching is that an engaged group of students is a learning group of students. I incorporate humor, when appropriate to the subject matter and setting, and emphasize participation by students whenever possible.
