Research Interests:

My research interests currently span three domains within the overarching goal of better understanding and treating depression and frequently co-occurring disorders: identifying cognitive and interpersonal factors leading to negative emotional states; enhancing psychotherapy and assessment with technology; and improving the implementation and dissemination of evidence based treatments, specifically cognitive behavioral therapy. I am particularly interested in developing projects which incorporate knowledge from other areas of psychology, such as judgment and decision making.
