My Research (About Me)

Delvon T. Mattingly is a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Behavioral Science and Center for Health Equity Transformation at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine. He finished his PhD in epidemiological science at the University of Michigan School of Public Health in April 2023 and his MS in epidemiology at the University of Louisville School of Public Health and Information Sciences in August 2018. His PhD dissertation examined psychosocial drivers of tobacco and cannabis use disparities among youth and adults in the United States.

Delvon is a social and substance use epidemiologist, tobacco control and regulatory scientist, and health equity researcher whose work aims to better understand the role structural and social determinants of health play in determining substance use outcomes such as misuse and associated use disparities. He is particularly interested in studying structural racism and its downstream factors (e.g., discrimination and police violence) as health determinants of substance misuse, dependence, and associated physical (e.g., lung cancer) and mental (e.g., depression) health outcomes across the life course (i.e., from youth to older adulthood).
