Brandi C. Fink, PhD Assistant Professor


Positions

I am interested in a contextual approach to studying how severe marital and family dysfunction contribute to the development of severe public health problems such as alcohol associated intimate partner violence, substance abuse, and severe behavioral problems in adolescents. Of particular interest are using neuropsychophysiological approaches to understand the association between alcohol use and the increase in severity and frequency of intimate partner violence in order to develop novel interventions for this problem.  Similarly, I am interested in biopotential predictors, such as event related potentials, of the discontinuation of substance abuse treatments and the return to substance use after treatment.  The goal of this work is also to develop novel interventions that improve substance abuse treatment outcomes.
