Dr. Krishnan-Sarin’s research is focused on developing a bio-behavioral understanding of substance use behaviors in adult and adolescent substance users, with the goal of developing optimal prevention and cessation interventions. Her primary areas of research focus are tobacco use in adolescents and alcohol drinking in adults.
