 Research Expertise & Professional Interests
Dr. Smith's program of research generally involves examining the social context of health-related behaviors, mechanisms, and outcomes. He is particularly interested in psychosocial factors that are associated with both psychological and physical reactions to stress, including considering gender and aging in health-risk mechanisms. The identification of modifiable risk and resilience factors (e.g., social support, health behaviors) operating in the wake of traumatic stress is a key research focus, which includes research examining factors predictive of the post-deployment health and functioning of male and female veterans. A central focus of Dr. Smith's ongoing program of research is on the effects of trauma and mental health sequelae on health, functioning, and well-being across life domains (work, family, health-related quality of life), particularly in the context of aging. Examining the public health implications of trauma is a theme that cuts across his research.
