I am an Associate Professor in the social, behavioral, and population sciences program and the maternal and child health program. I am also the Director of the doctoral program in SBPS. My research focuses on in the intersection of developmental sciences and social epidemiology, especially contextual influences on the development of risky health behaviors. My topical areas of expertise are adolescent and young adult development, problematic alcohol use, partner violence, and neighborhood effects. My current projects focus on how neighborhoods and activity spaces (i.e., places we go in our everyday lives) impact stress, mood, mental health, and substance use among persons living with HIV. I teach a masters-level social behavioral theories course (SBPS 6030), a doctoral level course in social determinants of health theories (SBPS 8750), and I co-teach the SBPS doctoral Seminar (SBPS 8800/8830).
