Research expertise

I am a behavioural scientist interested in the influence of the social and physical environmental on drinking behaviour, and in determining the effectiveness of strategies aimed at preventing alcohol-related harm.

I am, or have been, a principal investigator on substantial competitive grants, from government agencies including: New Zealand's Health Research Council and the Alcohol Advisory Council (joint funding of more than NZ$1.5M), the USA's National Institute of Alcoholism and Alcohol Abuse (US$253,000), and the Western Australian government agency: Healthway (A$314,000). I was part of a team which won a large contract (NZ$940,000) to implement a national alcohol policing project in New Zealand, and have headed several smaller successful proposals.

I currently lead three international project teams of researchers working on ongoing projects: Modifiable Environmental Determinants of Alcohol-related Harm, Geospatial Aspects of Alcohol-related Harm, and Evaluation of Changes to the Drinking Age. I lead a new Australian project funded by the Hunter Medical Research Institute, and have won several research contracts as a consultant.

My work is reflected in >110 peer-reviewed publications including several invited papers. The papers are published in general medical journals, leading public health journals and high-impact substance use journals. The papers represent several coherent and interrelated areas of research: child and adolescent injury, epidemiology of young peoples drinking, web-based interventions, survey methods, and policy evaluation. They reveal expertise in a range of areas: use of official data, population surveys, intervention development, quasi-experimental study designs, and clinical trials. The clinical trials and survey methods studies have been recognised internationally for their innovation and careful implementation.

I have made significant contributions as a referee for leading journals in his research discipline, as an associate editor of Alcohol and Alcoholism and an executive editorial board member of Drug and Alcohol Review. I have served as a NHMRC Grant Review Panel member and Assistant Chair, on the Health Research Council's Public Health Assessing Committee, and have refereed for national granting bodies of the UK, New Zealand, Canada, Switzerland and the Netherlands.

My research group includes several Level C academics and Post-doctoral Fellows. I supervise PhD and Masters students in public health and clinical psychology.

Collaboration

I have ongoing collaboration with leading researchers in Australia, USA, NZ, Canada, and the UK:

  • London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine (McCambridge), since 2007

Research program on Research Participation Effects. The partnership has produced substantial rewards, including a Wellcome Trust fellowship (McCaimbridge), ARC Discovery Project, NHMRC project, publications in high profile journals (e.g., NEJM, JNCI), and a growing awareness in various fields of the importance of systematically studying these phenomena.

  • Injury Prevention Research Unit, University of Otago (Langley, Connor): since 2004.

I lead the alcohol research conducted within the IPRU. The collaboration benefits from the combination of my expertise in the alcohol field and IPRU’s unique expertise with injury data. It has yielded >50 papers since 2004 and has had major impact on the research field and public policy.

  • Boston University School of Medicine (Saitz, Palfai), since 2006

I was the senior Australian investigator on a Center grant application (to NIH) for research on the prevention of adolescent risky drinking; have current projects with Saitz on the Australian HOAP trial (NHMRC), and with Palfai on e-SBI for cannabis (NIH)

  • Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation, USA (Voas, Paschall), since 2003

Minimum Drinking Age project, funded by NIH. The collaboration produced papers in the American Journal of Public Health that continue to influence policy debate in several countries and the work has been the subject of international awards (eg, Giordis Postdoctoral Research Award, 2006) and invitations to give plenaries at international meetings.

  • Centre for Addiction & Mental Health, Canada, since 2003

Clinical trials and reviews of web-based screening and brief intervention programs

  • National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre (Mattick): since 2008

Parent Alcohol and Teenage Health Outcomes Study, funded by ARC (2010-2014). I am a chief investigator on a large world first cohort study examining the effects of parental supply of alcohol on teenage drinking.

2006Kypri K, Voas RB, Langley JD, Stephenson SCR, Begg DJ, Tippetts AS, Davie GS, 'Minimum purchasing age for alcohol and traffic crash injuries among 15-to 19-year-olds in New Zealand', American Journal of Public Health, 96 126-131 (2006) [C1]

I was the scientific leader of this project, managed it, designed the study, wrote the competitive grant (National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, USA) led by Dr Voas, directed the analysis, and led the writing of the paper. This study has had immense influence of policy debate in several countries. In New Zealand it featured prominently in discussion of a private member’s bill in 2006 to return the purchase age to 20 and in the 2009/10 comprehensive review of alcohol policy by the Law Commission. In Australia it served as part of the evidence base referred to by the Prime Minister in his suggestion that the drinking age be 21. Senior academics and government agencies in Australia have cited the study in the development of policy advice. In the USA, where there is a push for lowering the drinking age in several states, the study has been cited as evidence of the public health risk of such a change.

I was the scientific leader of this project which was one of my PhD studies. I managed the project, designed the intervention and the trial, wrote a competitive grant application (Health Research Council of NZ), implemented the trial implementation, conducted the analysis, and led the writing of the paper. This paper was one of the first RCTs of a web-based alcohol intervention in a field that has grown massively since it was published. The paper is frequently cited in review articles and is described as methodologically rigorous. It has spawned successful competitive grants for larger trials, methodological studies, international awards (IVO), invited plenary presentations, and research collaborations.

Contribution. I was the scientific leader of this project, managed it, designed the intervention and the trial, led the team which obtained a competitive grant (Health Research Council of NZ), oversaw the trial implementation, directed the analysis, and led the writing of the paper. Impact. The paper has been the subject of local and international awards: a University of Newcastle VC’s Research Excellence Award in 2009, and the Hazelden Foundation’s Dan Anderson Award, to be presented in May 2010 in San Antonio, Texas. The findings gave rise to the THRIVE trial (Archives of Internal Medicine 169(16)1508-1514) and other international collaborations. On the basis of the research findings, the intervention was adopted as routine practice at university student health services in New Zealand (VUW, Otago) and Australia (UQ). The paper has been cited in several systematic reviews and meta-analyses. Journal ERA Rating: A* Journal Impact Factor (2009): 9.8 Citations: >30 at April 2011

2007Kypri K, Langley JD, Saunders JB, Cashell-Smith ML, 'Assessment may conceal therapeutic benefit: findings from a randomized controlled trial for hazardous drinking', Addiction, 102 62-70 (2007) [C1]

Contribution. I was the scientific leader of this project, managed it, designed the intervention and the trial, led the team which obtained a competitive grant (Health Research Council of NZ), oversaw the trial implementation, directed the analysis, and led the writing of the paper. Impact. The paper describes a ground-breaking methodological study and it has been widely cited. The study served as the basis of a highly productive collaboration with Dr Jim McCambridge of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, and led to a systematic review and meta-analysis of assessment effects (currently under review). The work led to a successful ARC Discover Project grant awarded in 2009. In 2009, I proposed and chaired a symposium on assessment effects in addiction research at the prestigious annual conference of the Research Society on Alcoholism in San Diego.

Contribution. I was the scientific leader of this project, managed it, designed the intervention and the trial, led the team which obtained a competitive grant (Health Research Council of NZ), oversaw the trial implementation, directed the analysis, and led the writing of the paper. Impact. The paper has been the subject of local and international awards: a University of Newcastle VC’s Research Excellence Award in 2009, and the Hazelden Foundation’s Dan Anderson Award, to be presented in May 2010 in San Antonio, Texas. The findings gave rise to the THRIVE trial (Archives of Internal Medicine 169(16)1508-1514) and other international collaborations. On the basis of the research findings, the intervention was adopted as routine practice at university student health services in New Zealand (VUW, Otago) and Australia (UQ). The paper has been cited in several systematic reviews and meta-analyses. Journal ERA Rating: A* Journal Impact Factor (2009): 9.8 Citations: >30 at April 2011

Contribution. I was the scientific leader of this project, managed it, designed the intervention and the trial, led the team which obtained a competitive grant (Health Research Council of NZ), oversaw the trial implementation, directed the analysis, and led the writing of the paper. Impact. The paper describes a ground-breaking methodological study and it has been widely cited. The study served as the basis of a highly productive collaboration with Dr Jim McCambridge of the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, and led to a systematic review and meta-analysis of assessment effects (currently under review). The work led to a successful ARC Discover Project grant awarded in 2009. In 2009, I proposed and chaired a symposium on assessment effects in addiction research at the prestigious annual conference of the Research Society on Alcoholism in San Diego.

I was the scientific leader of this project, managed it, designed the study, wrote the competitive grant (National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, USA) led by Dr Voas, directed the analysis, and led the writing of the paper. This study has had immense influence of policy debate in several countries. In New Zealand it featured prominently in discussion of a private member’s bill in 2006 to return the purchase age to 20 and in the 2009/10 comprehensive review of alcohol policy by the Law Commission. In Australia it served as part of the evidence base referred to by the Prime Minister in his suggestion that the drinking age be 21. Senior academics and government agencies in Australia have cited the study in the development of policy advice. In the USA, where there is a push for lowering the drinking age in several states, the study has been cited as evidence of the public health risk of such a change.

I was the scientific leader of this project which was one of my PhD studies. I managed the project, designed the intervention and the trial, wrote a competitive grant application (Health Research Council of NZ), implemented the trial implementation, conducted the analysis, and led the writing of the paper. This paper was one of the first RCTs of a web-based alcohol intervention in a field that has grown massively since it was published. The paper is frequently cited in review articles and is described as methodologically rigorous. It has spawned successful competitive grants for larger trials, methodological studies, international awards (IVO), invited plenary presentations, and research collaborations.
