Michele Staton

Professor, Department of Behavioral Science

My research in the last two decades has focused on increasing access to evidence-based alcohol and drug interventions for vulnerable population (particularly individuals in criminal justice settings). While alcohol use is legal, it can lead to criminal justice consequences when abused or used in risky or irresponsible ways. My interest in serving as a faculty fellow in the Beam Institute is to better understand efforts to promote responsible drinking and linkages to resources for individuals who engage in problem use.
