Robert’s main research interests are within the broad area of problem behaviour. In particular, he is interested in health-risk behaviour (drug and alcohol use, sex, driving, and gambling behaviours) during the emerging and young adult period of the lifespan and investigating which factors best predict young people’s involvement in these behaviours. Using a psychosocial perspective, he is interested in the impact of cognitive, personality, social, and affective factors on risky and reckless behaviours.
