In more than two decades of experience acquired at the University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon University, and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, she has overseen grant-funded research and clinical trials in health and psychology. Most of her work has focused on behavioral research investigations of nicotine and tobacco use and addiction, and the interplay between pharmacology and behavior, with ramifications for FDA policy making.
