Amanda Bunting, PhD

About Me:
Amanda is passionate about providing evidence-informed interventions to improve the lives of justice-involved and other vulnerable populations given their disproportionate burden of substance use disorder and health disparities.

Amanda M. Bunting, PhD is an Assistant Professor in the Section on Tobacco, Alcohol, and Drug Use in the Department of Population Health at the New York University School of Medicine. Her research addresses three priority public health areas: 1) patterns and prevalence of polysubstance use (including co-use of opioids and stimulants); 2) substance use and health disparities of justice-involved populations; and 3) substance use-related health outcomes in rural and vulnerable populations.
