    Collapse Overview
    My research interests center on the influence of substance use on adolescent and emerging adult neurodevelopment. My current work spans both cannabis-specific projects and the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development (ABCD) study. I aim to use improved objective measurement of complex behavioral characteristics, such as substance use and screen time. For instance, I use toxicological analysis and passive sensing in assessing behavioral and cognitive relationships. I am also interested in how unique patterns of substance use (e.g., co-use) may influence cognitive trajectories and the impact of secondhand cannabis exposure on cognitive, psychiatric, and health outcomes.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
