Patrick Habecker



My research focuses on drug use, hidden and hard-to-reach populations, and survey methodology. Currently I am focused on behaviors of people who inject drugs in rural Puerto Rico, testing and applying the network scale-up method, and exploring postmaster return rates in address-based surveys. Upcoming papers examine differences in injection network sizes, general population access to different types of drugs, and the cognitive aspects of the network scale-up method. Recent publications have appeared in the International Journal of Drug Policy, AIDS and Behavior, and PLoS ONE.
