A common theme throughout much of Dr. Cleveland's research is the appropriate application of advanced statistical methods to substance use prevention research. He was a post-doctoral fellow in the PAMT program, mentored by Linda Collins with a focus on latent class and latent transition analysis. He has collaborated with Stephanie Lanza; this collaboration has resulted in a paper in The Psychology of Addictive Behaviors that used latent transition analysis to examine patterns of alcohol use during the transition to the first semester of college among a sample of matriculating college students (Cleveland, Lanza, Ray, Turrisi, & Mallett, 2011).
