Research Interests:

    Our current research focuses broadly on three main areas: (1) interrelationships between mental disorders and physical health problems; (2) substance use disorders (in particular cigarette smoking, nicotine dependence and cannabis use); (3) risks factors and course of mental health problems over the life course.

    Mental disorders and physical health problems: Specifically, we are interested in the relationships between asthma/allergy and mental health from the prenatal period throughout adulthood.  We use longitudinal data and birth cohort studies to examine these relationships over the life course. In addition, we are currently conducting a study looking at mental health among children with food allergy and their parents.  Our goal, ultimately, is to develop integrated treatments for asthma and anxiety and depression, treatments for families of children with asthma/allergy, as well as interventions for other co-occurring physical and mental health problems. 

    Substance use disorders: We are interested in understanding trajectories and risk factors for substance use disorders across the life course.  In particular, we study the impact of individual, social and environmental exposures on the development and persistence of cigarette smoking and nicotine dependence. A major focus is the relationship between mental disorders and cigarette smoking within individuals and at a population level. We are also interested in understanding trajectories, risk factors and outcomes of cannabis use disorders over time among young persons in the community.

    Mental health across the life course: We use a prospective, life course approach to study risk factors and the natural course of mood, anxiety and substance use disorders from early childhood through adulthood at the population level.

    We welcome inquiries from prospective undergraduate students, graduate students, and post-docs interested in joining us in our research.
