Alexandra Loukas’ research focuses on adolescent and young adult problem behavior development, and tobacco use and cessation. She has a special interest in examining how factors from multiple ecological levels (e.g., family, school, culture) interact to protect youth from negative health outcomes. Dr. Loukas is currently funded by NIH to examine the use of alternative tobacco products by adolescents and young adults. She is also funded by the Tobacco Prevention and Control Program at the Texas Department of State Health Services to conduct a variety of community-based program development and evaluation projects.
