Research Interests

My health psychology research program focuses on the dynamic interplay of substance use and
sleep across human development. Two primary aims include (1) characterizing risk pathways
contributing to youth substance use and sleep problems, and (2) identifying social determinants
underlying sociodemographic disparities (e.g., race/ethnicity, LGBTQ+, socioeconomic). A
substantial theme of my work to date has focused on the use of non-prescription cannabis as
self-medication for sleep, including precipitants and proximal benefits/consequences across
adolescent and emerging adult samples. My lab utilizes intensive longitudinal designs,
advanced statistical techniques, and cutting-edge ambulatory technology for measurement and
modelling of non-normality and temporal variability in health risk behaviors. Ultimately, these
findings may inform targeted prevention/intervention efforts to curtail inequity and reduce public
health burden resulting from sleep problems, substance use, and associated harms.
