A central focus of Dr Smith's program of research is on examining the effects of traumatic stress 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 gender differences and aging. He is particularly interested in psychosocial factors and mechanisms that play a role in the effects of traumatic stress across the life course. The identification of modifiable risk and resilience factors (e.g., social, behavioral) operating in the wake of trauma and across the life course is a key focus, which includes research examining factors predictive of the post-deployment health and quality of life of male and female veterans. Examining the public health and health services implications of trauma is a theme that cuts across his research program. He also has a general interest in the application of advanced statistical methods in health sciences research. More generally, Dr. Smith has a long standing interest in examining the social context of health-related behaviors, mechanisms, and outcomes.
