We are focused on using technology and cross-cutting translational research to better the understanding and treatment of anxiety, trauma, and suicide-related psychopathology. Our research program examines anxiety-related vulnerability factors such as anxiety sensitivity, distress tolerance, and cognitive biases. On the applied side, we focus on computer-delivered interventions for these conditions.
