At the core I am interested in the social, economic, and political forces that interact
to produce both opportunities and constraints on individuals' freedom to pursue and
achieve their own goals.
I'm a post-doctoral fellow at The Ohio State University. My current objective is to support the FDA, who is trying to understand the potential for tobacco regulatory proposals to benefit public health. A lot of my work in this area is focused on vulnerable and isolated rural populations.
Another important research area of my focus is substance abuse recovery. I am particularly interested in programs in which a community of people in recovery from substance use disorders cooperate to produce a safe and effective recovery context (e.g., Oxford House).
