About Amanda Quisenberry

Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center
  • Assistant Professor of Oncology
  • Department of Health Behavior


Education and Training:

  • 2009-2013 - PhD - Psychology: Behavior Analysis, Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, MI

Professional Memberships:

  • Society for Research on Nicotine & Tobacco
  • College on Problems of Drug Dependence


Research Overview:

I'm interested in discovering the interventions, including policy and treatment, that decrease impulsivity and valuation of drugs, specifically tobacco. Through these investigations, my research provides insight into the societal and individual mechanisms of tobacco use that can be used to decrease this risky behavior that causes many types of cancer.
