My primary research focus examines the social influences on emerging adults’ health outcomes. More specifically, investigating college students’ drinking, hooking-up, and unwanted sexual experiences while utilizing a social network lens. Recently, much of my work has focused on using person centered analyses (e.g., Latent Class and Latent Transition Analyses) to identify the types of social networks that students develop in regard to each of these behaviors.
