I am a developmental psychologist with additional training and expertise in quantitative methods. I am an assistant professor in the UW Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and an adjunct assistant professor at the UW School of Social Work. I am a core member of the Center for the Study of Health and Risk Behaviors (CSHRB) and a faculty affiliate of the Center for Studies in Demography and Ecology (CSDE). My main collaborations at UW involve colleagues from CSHRB but I also maintain strong research collaborations with my colleagues from the Social Development Research Group (SDRG), School of Social Work, and other departments.
My research focuses on three distinct but related substantive areas: (1) substance use-related policy, particularly the impact of cannabis-related policies on youth substance use; (2) the etiology of cannabis, alcohol, and other substance use problems and related health risk behaviors from childhood to adulthood and across generations, as well as the prevention and intervention efforts aimed at reducing these problem behaviors; and (3) positive development of youth from historically under-served and under-represented backgrounds living in the context of disadvantage as well as prevention and intervention efforts focused on reducing educational and health disparities. Furthermore, my interest in statistical methodologies and the application of rigorous quantitative and qualitative methods to social science phenomena are the common themes in my research pursuits.
In addition to research, I teach graduate-level classes on research methods and evaluation in social welfare (SOCW505, SOCW506, SOCW507) and research and theory (SOCWL599). I am also actively involved in mentoring graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.
