Raina Pang, Ph.D.

My research utilizes human behavioral pharmacology and Ecological Momentary Assessment (EMA) methods to investigate mechanisms underlying tobacco related health disparities (e.g., sex/gender differences, female-specific factors in tobacco addiction, psychiatric comorbidity). Currently, I am PI on an EMA study investigating ovarian hormones on naturalistic smoking patterns. Additionally, I am PI on a laboratory behavioral pharmacology study investigating negative reinforcement mechanisms of smoking reinstatement in Major Depressive Disorder, and whether these associations are amplified in women compared to men.
