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.
In my post-doctoral fellowship at The Ohio State University, I support the FDA's objective of developing effective and equitable tobacco regulations to benefit public health. My current work 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).
