Using Ecological Momentary Assessment to investigate young adult smoking, alcohol use, and substance co-use in the natural environment

Dr Johannes Thrul
University of California, San Francisco USA


Mobile devices including smartphones offer unprecedented opportunities to study substance use in the natural environment by using ecological momentary assessment (EMA) techniques. In this seminar, I will present data of different EMA studies investigating cigarette smoking, alcohol use, and substance co-use (cigarette/alcohol co-use, cigarette/marijuana co-use) among young adults in Europe and the US.

Johannes Thrul is a postdoctoral scholar at the Center for Tobacco Control Research and Education at the University of California, San Francisco. He received his PhD in psychology in 2013 from Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany. His current research is utilizing digital technology, including social media, to develop, test, and deliver evidence based cognitive behavioral interventions to prevent and treat substance use disorders. He also focuses on studying substance use behavior based on event-level data.
