Professional Summary

Dr. Robin Osterman is an Associate Professor at the UC College of Nursing and is an adult psychiatric mental-health clinical nurse specialist with specialty certification in inpatient obstetrics. Her research involves the testing of social-behavioral interventions to decrease risky behaviors, with a focus on preventing alcohol and substance abuse in pregnancy. In 2010-2012, she was  awarded the Building Interdisciplinary Research Careers in Women's Health (BIRCWH) K12 Award for her study "Motivational Interview to Decrease Prenatal Alcohol Use". Since that time, her research has focused on the use of biomarkers of alcohol use in opioid addicted pregnant women to detect prenatal alcohol use in high risk women and to examine drinking outcomes of women who report histories of childhood and lifetime trauma.
