As a CRTA fellow, Dr. Lowry works on projects associated with the NCI's Classification of Laws Associated with School Students (CLASS). He is interested in studying communication and its association with health behavior. He will also conduct research that links CLASS with other data sources such as the FLASHE (Family Life, Activity, Sun, Health, and Eating) study.

Dr. Lowry earned a B.A. with a double major in Psychology and Russian Studies from Stetson University. After graduating from Stetson, he taught English in Russia. While there, he became interested in learning more about language. He returned to the United States and earned his Ph.D. and M.A. in Cognitive Psychology at the University of South Florida, focusing on how language and attention are related.
