This special section is dedicated to some of the recent work by Dr. Angela Stevens, who passed away unexpectedly last year. She is dearly missed by those fortunate enough to have known her, but her legacy lives on through the lives she touched and her research. Since the beginning of her undergraduate training, Dr. Angela Stevens has dedicated her professional life to improving the lives of people who use drugs and alcohol through research. During her doctoral training at Texas Tech University, her research program focused on risk and protective factors which influence alcohol and cannabis use based on the theory of planned behavior. Dr. Stevens’ master’s thesis utilized daily diary methodology to examine the within-person intention-behavior relation for alcohol use among a sample of young adults (Stevens et al., 2017). This work indicated that individuals higher in phenotypes related to problematic drinking (i.e., impulsigenic traits) had stronger intentions to drink, which in turn predicted higher levels of alcohol consumption. Building on this work, her dissertation (Stevens et al., 2020) involved a psychometric evaluation of a momentary impulsivity scale across two intensive longitudinal samples using ecological momentary assessment (EMA). This work informed the assessment of state-level factors relevant to substance use. (PsycInfo Database Record (c) 2022 APA, all rights reserved).
