Danielle Ruderman received her MSW from the Ohio State University. Her research focuses on substance use with a particular aim to better understand drinking events with the use of system dynamics modeling. Ruderman plans to utilize dynamical modeling to provide solutions to alcohol-related problems that happen proximal to events. She is also interested in the use of mobile interventions that can be administered during a drinking event. Ruderman has published 8 peer-reviewed journal articles and one book chapter.  She has presented at numerous conferences in the U.S. as well as abroad. Ruderman received the Broad of Trustees Student Recognition Award in 2013 and was recently awarded the Ray Travel Award for Service and Scholarship.
