I’m a methodologist using advanced statistical modelling to better understand the role of the environment on health-related outcomes. Much of my work has been in substance use, primarily alcohol and tobacco, with a focus on population-level prevention. Recent alcohol projects have included examining the relationships between alcohol outlet density and crime, seeing how a state’s alcohol policy environment and enforcement relate to things such as alcohol consumption, traffic crashes, and mortality, developing and testing a manager-focused alcohol retailer training program, and developing new techniques for preventing alcohol-related problems on college campuses. This alcohol work is in close collaboration with my colleagues in the Alcohol Epidemiology Program, located in the Division of Epidemiology & Community Health. 

Other work focuses on obesity and HIV/AIDS, including prevention methodology and intervention.
