Research Interest:

My research interests include nicotine dependence, smoking cessation (including harm reduction), and tobacco control. I have extensive experience in smoking cessation/tobacco research, across the continuum of human-lab, clinical trial/treatment outcome, and policy-based studies. I have collaborated as co-investigator on several gender- or hormone- focused studies of smoking behavior. More recently, my focus has turned to the area of cessation induction methods for smokers not motivated to quit, including methods for recruitment, clinical strategies for intervention, and assessment of multiple outcomes, with a particular research emphasis on strategies that have the potential to either undermine or promote quitting.
