I am an expert in the assessment and treatment of tobacco use and heavy alcohol use. I have experience conducting laboratory-based, clinical trials, mixed methods, and implementation and dissemination research. My research has identified important predictors of tobacco and alcohol use and treatment response. I am also developing and testing novel tobacco and alcohol interventions that are integrated with primary/specialty healthcare, promote multiple health behavior change, and incorporate technology with funding from NIH grants. I have held leadership roles for the Society for Research on Nicotine and Tobacco and the Research Society on Alcoholism. I have presented at numerous national and international conferences and am widely cited for my research. In addition to my research activities, I direct the Tobacco Treatment Service at Smilow Cancer Hospital and teach/mentor medical students, residents, and fellows.

Clinical Trials

New treatments for many conditions are tested in clinical trials, which ultimately bring lifesaving new drugs and devices to the patients who need them most. By participating in a clinical trial, you may get access to the most advanced treatments for your condition, and help determine their benefits for future patients.
