Timothy’s research interests include both the etiology and prevention of behavior problems and substance use in children and adolescents. His work seeks to understand moderators and mechanisms of response to family and youth-focused preventive interventions. He has a particular interest in translational approaches to prevention and utilizes measures of youth neurocognitive functioning to identify targets of programming and assess intervention response. A primary goal of this program of research is to develop adaptive preventive intervention programming for youth and families. Dr. Piehler also has an interest in quantitative methods, including structural equation modeling. Read Timothy’s full bio.
