Description of Research

I am currently studying the buffering impact that self-control has on quitting smoking and staying quit during times of stress. More broadly, my research interests include health behavior change as it pertains to addictive behaviors (including nicotine dependence, alcohol dependence, and illicit substance dependence), obesity, and eating disorders.
