Dr Mazanov started his career as a health psychologist exploring mathematical modelling of adolescent smoking behaviour. The work on adolescent drug use soon generalised to a research program examining the role of drugs in sport, with an emphasis on performance enhancing drug use. This line of research morphed again into a general interest in the use of substances or methods for performance or image enhancing purposes, such as the non-medical use of prescription stimulants for academic pursuits. These research interests combine with teaching graduate management in a School of Business to define an ongoing interest in the policy and management of drug use in the workplace and other social contexts. This includes how the human research ethics of drug related research are defined and implemented.
