Research lines / topics:

My areas of interest are the epidemiology of alcohol use, associated problems, and use disorders. Among the problems associated with consumption, I am especially interested in injuries from external causes due to their great impact on public health. Another line of work focuses on the psychometric performance of consumption measures, screening and diagnosis of harmful use and use disorders.
