My research examines the cognitive and behavioral mechanisms underlying alcohol use and abuse. Specifically, I study the role of cognitive processes (e.g., attentional bias, drug expectancies, etc.) in the development of alcohol and other drug abuse, with a special focus on how cognitive-behavioral treatments can be designed to alter cognitive processes in an effort to reduce alcohol and other drug abuse.
