My research focuses on the treatment of tobacco dependence and better understanding the processes of change through randomized clinical trials and related studies. I am especially interested in the treatment of comorbid and marginalized populations, and the complexities these introduce into treatment. Currently, I am collaborating with other Cancer Center Investigators on studies of the treatment of LGBTQ smokers via social media, and the treatment of homeless individuals who smoke. I have also served as a consultant to group s adapting methods from earlier clinical trials to digital media and have been actively involved in developing content for the modalities.
I have served as Director of an NIH-funded Center Grant, and a Postdoctoral Training program in drug abuse treatment research. I am a recipient of the Ove Ferno Award for Clinical Research from the Society for Research on Nicotine and Tobacco, and the George Sarlo Teaching Award.
