Biography

Madeline Meier is an assistant professor in the Department of Psychology at Arizona State University.  She received her PhD from the University of Missouri in 2010; completed her clinical internship at the Durham Veterans Affairs Medical Center in 2010; and completed her postdoctoral training at Duke University in 2013. Her research uses prospective longitudinal and case-control designs to understand the causes, course, and consequences of problematic substance use, primarily cannabis use. Her main interests involve understanding how cannabis use affects both mental health and physical health across the lifespan. Dr. Meier also has expertise in using retinal imaging, a tool taken from ophthalmology, to understand the vascular pathophysiology of psychosis.

Education

PhD from the University of Missouri in 2010, and postdoctoral training at Duke University in 2013.

Research Interests

I am interested in the causes, course, and consequences of substance use problems, particularly cannabis use. My current research projects involve (a) documenting the effects of cannabis use on cognitive function, mental health, and physical health, (b) investigating motives for, and consequences of, novel methods of cannabis use and novel cannabis preparations (e.g., cannabis concentrates), and (c) investigating how retinal imaging of microvessels can inform our understanding of the links between canabis use, neuropsychological function, and psychiatric problems (psychosis and depression).
