She actively continues a line of research devoted to investigating the role of various risky behaviors (such as overweight, alcohol use, tobacco use) on college student health. She is also co-Investigator on several grants targeting smoking cessation and weight loss among both youth and adults, most recently two NIH-awards investigating smoking cessation strategies aimed toward assisting HIV-positive individuals and HIV-positive Latinos in quitting smoking.
