Dr. Chung’s research focuses on adolescent and young adult substance use: assessment and diagnosis, clinical course, and intervention. She graduated from Rutgers (1998 PhD in Clinical Psychology), completed post-docs at Brown University and the University of Pittsburgh, and was Professor at the University of Pittsburgh before joining the Rutgers faculty. Current projects evaluate the use of mobile technology for substance use assessment and intervention, and examine racial disparities in risk for substance use and sexually transmitted infection/HIV in the Pittsburgh Girls Study (a large longitudinal community sample, N=2450, followed from childhood to young adulthood).
