Focus of Work
Our research integrates multiple disciplinary approaches and methods, including human laboratory, clinical trial, epidemiological, and systematic review and meta-analysis, to delineate psychological and neurobiological factors that sustain cigarette smoking and nicotine dependence. The overarching goal of our research is to improve the treatment of nicotine dependence, especially for high tobacco burden clinical (e.g., cancer, depression) and community (e.g., low income, LGBT) populations.
