Research Interests 

Dr. Blank’s research aims to inform the regulation of nicotine/tobacco products. Much of this work addresses
the abuse liability of novel tobacco products (e.g. electronic cigarettes/vapes), as well as predictors of tobacco
use patterns among both youth and adult populations. More recently, she has focused on tobacco use among
disadvantaged populations such as those from rural communities or with comorbid opioid dependence.
