Overview

Mentoring
Available: 09/03/18, Expires: 02/28/20

What can the way we use technology like smartphones tell us about mental health. Our research group (digitalpsych.org) explores how digital technology can inform risk prediction and wellness recovery in various brain disorders. We are always happy to talk about projects with interested students. The ideal candidate is interested in the intersection of patient care, data science, technology, and ethics. The project is based out the Mass. Mental Health Center located in the Longwood Medical Area.

PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
