Research Expertise: 
Technology | Health | Behavior Analysis | Behavioral Economics

My primary research activities involve developing and testing the integration of technological innovations with behavioral interventions for promoting drug abstinence and other health behavior.

I am exploring mobile and video game-based interventions to promote smoking abstinence in adult smokers. In addition, I have investigated novel approaches to increasing adherence with recommended medical regimens, as well as physical activity, particularly among individuals diagnosed with diabetes. My research can be understood within the framework of Behavioral Economics, with a particular focus on delay discounting and immediate incentives for healthy behavior. In the past, I have conducted pre-clinical basic research investigating the effects of nicotine on responding for environmental stimuli to identify why nicotine dependence is so difficult to treat.
