The mechanisms underlying the relationship among sleep, self-regulation, and psychopathology
We are interested in evaluating how sleep and self-regulation reciprocally influencing each other, and how they conjunctively impact psychopathology. We are currently conducting studies using the Pavlovian-Instrumental Transfer (PIT) paradigm to examine the effects of sleep deprivation on the habitual control of eating and how the PIT transfer effects differentiate individuals with eating pathology from healthy controls.
Efficacy and implementation of digital health interventions
We are developing and evaluating digital behavioral health interventions for teens, adults, and older adults with psychiatric and medical comorbidities. Specifically, we are interested in testing how different components of mobile applications such as virtual coaching, monitoring tools, and the addition of human support contribute to the efficacy of the intervention. We are also interested in evaluating different implementation strategies for maximizing the dissemination and impact of digital health interventions at the population level.
