Johnson VA Medical Center. Dr. Wray earned her PhD in Clinical Psychology from the University at Buffalo.

Research Interests: Dr. Wray’s research interests broadly include issues related to substance abuse. Her training has been primarily in smoking research, with interest in topics such as craving, cue-reactivity, and ecological momentary assessment. Dr. Wray is newly interested in pursuing treatment research in clinical settings, especially in Primary Care.
