    Collapse Overview
    My research examines the behavioral and pharmacological factors underling the high rate of co-use of tobacco with alcohol and other drugs of abuse with the goal of improving treatment and prevention efforts with this high risk population.

    I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Drug Abuse Treatment and Services Research Training Program at UCSF. I completed my PhD in the department of Behavioral Neuroscience at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, OR.
