Personal Statement

I came to the University of Washington in 2014 as a postdoctoral fellow supported by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism and has been faculty here since 2016. My research interests include examination of cognitive and psychosocial processes thought to underlie substance misuse predominantly among adolescents and young adults. Support for my work has been provided by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, the National Institute on Drug Abuse, and by the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Institute at the University of Washington.
