Early Career Faculty Spotlight

Introducing Mark Prince, Ph.D. in our faculty member spotlight!

My research is focused on identifying mechanisms of behavior change in addiction and on developing interventions targeting these mechanisms. My intervention efforts have Untitledfocused on brief individually-tailored interventions that can be disseminated on a large scale. In addition, my quantitative interests include Mixture Modeling to identify latent profiles or trajectories of substance use behaviors, and Multilevel Structural Equation Modeling to examine relationships among context-specific psychological constructs. The overall goal of my work is to develop effective treatment approaches for those individuals seeking help for substance use problems. To achieve this goal, I believe that it is critical to understand patterns in the clinical course of substance use disorders, as well as the ways in which people are successful in achieving change.
