Research Interests

Dr. Goldstick specializes in spatial and longitudinal data analysis and predictive analytics. His primary substantive interests are public health applications involving substance use and violence, and clinical risk prediction for outcomes like violent injury, stroke, and drug overdose.
Recent projects Dr. Goldstick has led include:
• NIDA R03 funded to develop methods to determine age-dependence in the predictors of violence, substance use and its comorbidities
• IPC Core Project on spatial variation in the effectiveness of Michigan’s graduated driver licensing law
• NIAAA R03 funded to study predictors of alcohol use transitions, and how those transitions coalesce with transitions in other health behaviors, including prescription drug overdose risk
