More generally, he is interested in the relationship between employment and alcohol and tobacco consumption patterns and problems, especially among young adults. His most recent research concerns ethnographic evaluations of tobacco policy in California bars, multi-unit housing, and casinos and community level prevention of underage drinking and other drug use in Native American reservations.
