My overall research interests focus on preventing and reducing substance use and related negative impacts among at-risk populations (e.g., young adults, sexual minorities, people with substance use disorders). I have experience with various study designs, including population-based surveys, daily diaries, ecological momentary assessments, longitudinal panel surveys, qualitative studies, and mixed-methods studies. My current research focuses on applying mobile health technology and machine learning to address dual use of e-cigarette and cigarette as well as co-use of tobacco and cannabis among young people.
