Our research explores the causes, assessment, and treatments of psychological, substance use, and related public health problems across the lifespan. In particular, our research leverages translational epidemiologic methods to (a) better understand the processes that account for the associations between putative causal risk factors and health problems, (b) evaluate real-world interventions, and (c) guide intervention developmental and dissemination. We have a particular interest in studying health disparities, focusing on individuals and groups who are especially vulnerable or who have been marginalized. Our research combines advances in several fields, including clinical science, developmental science, epidemiology/biostatistics, behavior genetics, and dissemination and implementation science.
