Personal Statement

 I am a social epidemiologist and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Behavioral and Community Health Sciences. My research focuses on the social ecology of substance use, model-based approaches to study drinking behaviors and related problems, and population-based analyses of alcohol-related problems such as violence. I am the Principal Investigator of an NIH R21 grant focused on the extent to which high-risk sexual behaviors and sexual assault victimization and perpetration vary in relation to selection of drinking contexts, use of alcohol in contexts, and level of use in contexts; and an NIAAA-funded R01 that uses small scale multi-methods approaches, including local survey and archival data, to assess four specific social mechanisms that may link over-concentrations of off-premise alcohol outlets in neighborhood areas to alcohol-related problems (e.g., violence and heavy drinking). I also study the spatial and social patterns of opioid use in Pennsylvania with my collaborator Dr. Jessie Burke.
