My research focuses on emerging substance use disorders in young people, experimental medicine models of drug use and misuse, and neurobehavioral processes contributing to the onset and maintenance of substance use disorders. I also have an interest in the acute effects of MDMA. I use a range of range of research methods including human behavioural pharmacology and neuroimaging (MRI).
