Graduate Students


Matthew Kramer (5th Year)

I’m interested in psychopathy, narcissism, how individuals with these traits utilize Protective Behavioral Strategies, and how they influence peers’ regarding deviance from norms and maladaptive behaviors.

Roselyn Peterson (4th Year)

Research interests include the relationship between protective behavioral strategies and adverse sexual outcomes (including sexual assault, sexual regret, and sexual risk) in the context of substance use.

Daniel Pinto (3rd Year)

Overall, my research aims to investigate the specific factors that are implicated in one's decision to initiate and maintain substance use. Specifically, I am interested in the etiological role that impulsivity plays in substance dependency and related disorders.

Angelina Leary (2nd Year)

My research interests focus on college students alcohol use, particularly interventions targeted to reduce alcohol-related consequences (especially for first-time-in-college (FTIC) students). More recently, I am very interested in the role identity plays in these interventions, specifically looking at long term outcomes of interventions as a function of identity change.

Ardhys De Leon (2nd Year)

I am interested in investigating how to reduce the maladaptive behaviors that lead to substance use in emerging adults, while considering the concurrent effects of co-occurring mental health disorders. Furthermore, I aim to identify how to mitigate the underlying self-regulation factors that lead to the onset and maintenance of these disorders.

Emily Burr (1st Year)

I am currently interested in investigating the role of poor self-regulation, particularly emotion regulation deficits, in maladaptive eating behaviors. More broadly, I am generally interested in compulsive behaviors associated with adverse health outcomes.
