Dr. Schulenberg's research concerns the etiology and epidemiology of drug and alcohol use across adolescence and the transition to adulthood, and the impact of developmental transitions on trajectories of health and well-being. His analyses have provided evidence of differentials in drug and alcohol use by race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and residence with parents, and more generally the different pathways of substance use during the transition to adulthood.
