Lisa Fucito PhD
Assistant Professor of Psychiatry
Treatments for cigarette smoking and heavy drinking; Moderators and mechanisms of treatment response; Sleep disturbance and substance use
Dr. Fucito's research focuses on:
- Developing novel treatments for smoking cessation and heavy alcohol consumption;
- Identifying factors that optimize the efficacy of existing smoking and alcohol interventions;
- Examining the mechansims through which these treatments bring about clinical change.
She is particularly interested in designing and evaluating smoking and alcohol interventions for individuals with co-occurring mental health and substance use problems.
She is currently conducting research aimed at improving smoking cessation success among heavy drinkers. She is also testing smoking and alcohol interventions for individuals with sleep disturbance.
