Research Overview

My research interests relate broadly to health psychology and self-control. These areas include the relationship between alcohol use and risky sexual behavior, how automatic and controlled cognitive processes relate to risky decision making and behavior, and the development of effective interventions for high risk drinkers. I am also interested in the topic of sleep deprivation as it relates to overall health, cognition and emotion. I am currently the Project Coordinator for the Substance Use Risk Education (SURE) Project, a collaboration between InCHIP and the Center for Alcohol and Addicition Studies (CAAS) at Brown University.
