General Research InterestFactors influencing adolescent risk-taking behavior, particularly smoking initiation
Research DescriptionMy research focuses on the psychological processes underlying adolescents' decisions to remain smoke-free or to begin smoking. In particular, the research focuses on those attitudes and norms that are salient when the adolescent is in situations where cigarettes are offered. In addition, the research explores the role of interpersonal communication about smoking, media depictions of smoking behavior, and cultural understandings of smoking.
