Research Interests

Adolescent and young adult problem behaviors; tobacco and e-cigarette use; vaping; risk and resilience;

Adolescent and young adult problem behavior development, and tobacco use and cessation. I have a special interest in examining how factors from multiple ecological levels (e.g., family, school, culture) interact to protect youth from negative health outcomes. Currently funded by the NIH to examine the use of alternative tobacco products by adolescents and also funded by the Tobacco Prevention and Control Program at the Texas Department of State Health Services to conduct a variety of community-based program development and evaluation projects.
