Research Interests:

  • Behavioral Medicine/Health Psychology
  • Tobacco-Related Disorders

Dr. Cohen’s primary research interest is in the field of health psychology with an emphasis on addictive behaviors. More specifically, his research program systematically explores behavioral, cognitive, and physiological mechanisms that may contribute to nicotine use and dependence. As part of his programmatic research effort, he is interested in identifying healthy alternative behaviors that may aid nicotine dependent individuals in their cessation efforts. Dr. Cohen, along with his students and colleagues, have also investigated relevant individual differences that may help to maintain tobacco use, including personality traits, emotional regulation, and affective states such as depression and anxiety.
