My expertise is alcohol-induced impairment and intoxication. Barry's research spans a variety of content areas associated with the assessment and measurement alcohol-related behaviors. Content areas include, but are not limited to, impaired driving and intoxication, protective behavioral strategies to minimize intoxication, and measurement of alcohol-related behaviors (i.e., use of single-item scales, visual cues of intoxication). I also specialize in the health of student service members/veterans in higher education.
