Substance use, intimate partner violence, gender role stress, and men's health

Research Statement

I have two related research areas: the relationship between substance use and intimate partner violence, and the impact of gender role stress on men's health and behavior.  My research on substance use and violence focuses on better understanding the role that alcohol and various drugs may play in increasing the risk for violence between intimate partners.  I am interested in using personal digital assistants (i.e., palm-top computers) to assess the temporal or day-to-day association between substance use and violence. I am also interested in examining the extent to which poly-substance use, and substance use by one or both partners, impacts the odds of violence.  The long-term goal of these projects is to inform, devise, and test interventions to reduce these major societal problems.  My research on gender role stress explores the extent to which men's appraisal of situations that may challenge cultural notions of masculinity affects their mood (e.g., anger), information processing (e.g., attributions), and behavior (e.g., substance use, violence, etc.).
