Dr. Read’s program of research focuses on social and individual-level factors associated with alcohol misuse and on comorbid alcohol use disorder and posttraumatic stress disorder. She has expertise in several methodological areas, including longitudinal work, laboratory tasks, and survey approaches. Along with her colleagues, Dr. Read has developed widely used measures of substance use behavior, including the Young Adult Alcohol Consequences Questionnaire[1] and the Marijuana Consequences Questionnaire[2]. She has an extensive track record of publications with more than 150 peer-reviewed publications. She also has an impressive history of extramural grant funding and is currently the Principal or Co-Investigator on six active grants, including a current NIAAA-funded R21 examining how alcohol cues in the daily environment contribute to drinking risk, and an R01 aimed at understanding risk and prevention of alcohol-involved sexual assault among women.

JSAD began circulating in 1940 and is the oldest substance-related journal published in the United States. JSAD is based in the Center of Alcohol and Substance Use Studies at Rutgers.
