Research Focus

Dr. Gabrielli’s program of research centers on identification of modifiable environmental risk factors for adolescent health risk behaviors (e.g., substance use) that can be targeting for intervention and prevention efforts. She also has a specific interest in working with understudied and high risk populations in this area, with a particular emphasis on youth in foster care. Following her work at the Center for Technology and Behavioral Health at Dartmouth, she developed an interest in applications of digital technologies to address the prevention and treatment needs of youth clinical populations. Dr. Gabrielli has also created a framework for a media literacy preventative intervention for parents (T.E.C.H. Parenting) to reduce youth risk for initiation of health risk behaviors.
