Christina Schulz, PhD

  • Post Doctoral Trainee

Christina Schulz is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Pittsburgh in the Department of Psychiatry. She earned her Ph.D. in Behavioral Science with a certificate in the Interdisciplinary Neuroscience program from the University of Rhode Island. Her research focuses on applying advanced quantitative methodologies to understand factors related to problematic alcohol use among young adults. Specifically, she is interested in how contextual factors (e.g., environment) and socio-cognitive processes (i.e., expectancies, societal norms) heighten impulsive behavior, and how this might lead to subsequent alcohol use and related problems. A secondary programmatic line of research focuses on understanding alcohol-related processes among sexual minority populations. When she is not in the lab, Christina enjoys cooking, reading, and cheering on the New York Metropolitans.
