Research Summary

My research and scholarly activity is grounded by a desire to promote and explore behavioral, biological, and motivational processes related to the maintenance and treatment of addiction and related disorders. In the service of this focus, I have sought opportunities to investigate addiction using experience sampling methods and clinical trials. Additionally, I am interested in developing focused treatments for chronic pain that compliment medications for opioid use disorder.
