Research Interests

Dr. Tuliao's research interest broadly focuses on substance use disorders, in particular its underlying mechanism, treatment, and reduction/prevention of substance use-related harm.  Working under the assumption that SUD is an executive control dysfunction, his research focuses on biases in decisional processes that drive the inability to control both substance use and subsequent problematic behavior.  Dr. Tuliao's current research projects include examining decisional processes underlying alcohol-involved sexual assault among college students.  In addition to decision processes, Dr. Tuliao also studies the impact of culture on SUD, its symptom expression, and treatment.  He believes that understanding cultural factors could inform SUD treatment and improve help-seeking behaviors and treatment utilization.  Current research on this area includes a cross-cultural study on drinking behaviors and cognitions between the U.S. and the Philippines.
