His interest in research piqued, Clapp chose the applied science of social work for his graduate studies at SDSU. He was initially interested in child abuse prevention but ended up working on an alcohol use prevention research project, which turned into a decades-long career. Clapp returned to his hometown to teach at his alma mater SDSU, where he was a part of the faculty for 16 years and directed the Center on Alcohol and Drug Studies for Clapp has published more than journal articles in the Journal of Studies on Alcohol and Drugs, Addiction, Drug and Alcohol Dependence, among many others, and was the founding co-editor-in-chief of the International Journal of Alcohol and Drug Research.
Department of Education and Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, and has been principal investigator on over 20 projects. This fall, Clapp and Adam Leventhal, professor of preventative medicine at the Keck School of Medicine of USC, will serve as co-principal investigators for a new interdisciplinary addiction research institute encouraged by the USC Office of the Provost.
Clapp is currently working on developing a mobile application that will leverage smart technology to predict when someone is drunk or is making decisions that will lead them to drunkenness. The app could also automatically order a ride to prevent drunk driving or identify the deated driver in a group. The target population for the app would be college students, one of the heaviest-drinking groups in the United States.
To achieve this goal, Clapp plans to start testing the mathematical models he and his fellow researchers have developed to see if they hold up in real-world contexts. In addition to supporting the problem-focused research being done by faculty at the school — perhaps best reflected in their participation in the Grand Challenges for Social Work — Clapp is also focused on enhancing the student experience. Clapp has already identified some specific areas where student involvement can be enhanced, including planning school-wide events that directly affect students, like town halls and orientation.
Clapp also plans to expand integration of diversity and inclusion into the fabric of the school, with an emphasis on the student experience. Breadcrumb Home News.Online chance encounter with professor turns into
