Beth Ann’s research has largely focused on causal effects estimation when using observational data. Her substantive research has primarily fallen into three areas: (1) substance abuse treatment for adolescents, (2) the impact of non-genetic factors on Huntington’s disease, and (3) the effects of gun and opioid state policies on outcomes. She co-directed the RAND Center for Causal Inference between 2013-2018. Currently, Griffin is a co-investigator on Gun Policy in America, a RAND initiative to understand the effects of gun policies, and is co-directing RAND’s Opioid Policy Tools and Information Center (OPTIC) to foster innovative research, tools and methods for tackling the opioid epidemic.
