Research Interests

Dr. Flory's research focuses on understanding outcomes associated with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children, adolescents, and young adults/college students. Her research examines mechanisms that might explain why individuals with ADHD experience greater substance use and problems associated with use, more social and academic impairment, and more negative health and mental health challenges than those without ADHD. In addition, Dr. Flory is part of a team of colleagues from around the country who are developing and testing new cognitive-behavioral and health-focused (e.g., exercise) treatments for college students with ADHD. Finally, Dr. Flory is broadly interested in the epidemiology of child and adolescent emotional and behavioral health concerns and is involved with several research projects examining prevalence of ADHD and other mental health conditions among youth. Dr. Flory has received research funding from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Institute for Educational Sciences (IES), the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Institute of Health (NIH), and the National Institute of Justice (NIJ).
