Jane Metrik, PhD
ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR, BROWN UNIVERSITY
Dr. Metrik is a core faculty member at Brown University’s Center for Alcohol and Addiction Studies (CAAS). Trained in
the Joint Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology at the University of California, San Diego/SDSU, Dr. Metrik completed
Brown’s clinical psychology internship and post-doctoral fellowship at CAAS before joining faculty in 2007. She has
served as Principal Investigator, Co-Investigator, and Mentor on numerous federally funded research projects and as a
research mentor to CAAS postdoctoral fellows. Dr. Metrik directs a program of research focused on understanding the
behavioral mechanisms that influence the etiology of cannabis use, related problems, cannabis use disorder (CUD), and
comorbidity with alcohol and affective disorders. Dr. Metrik’s recent research examined cannabis’s pharmacological, cueelicited,
and neurocognitive effects in a number of domains including incentive salience, drug expectancy, impulsive and
risky behaviors, and processing of affective information. Concurrent projects span from laboratory paradigms examining
acute and chronic effects of cannabis to longitudinal epidemiological studies on CUD and its comorbidity with affective
disorders among veterans.
