Areas of Research
Dr. Mann focuses his research on alcohol and drug problems and the identification of factors that increase and decrease these problems. He has studied the epidemiology of alcohol-related problems (e.g., deaths from drunk driving, liver disease, suicide, and homicide) as well as individual, environmental, and social factors that influence them. Dr. Mann’s work has included evaluations of programs and policies designed to prevent these problems. A related area of interest is the significance of affective states including depression and specific patterns of behaviour such as “road rage” on collisions and risk of injury.
