Our group has several focuses including 1) investigating smartphone based digital phenotyping to predict relapse in mental health and 2) developing digital health tools for college mental health. Our goal is to understand how digital signals generated by everyday use of smartphones may be associated with symptomatology and to improve the quality and accessibility of treatment for mental illness through education, research, and innovation in digital psychiatry. We also seek to design mental health interventions offered via digital health. A working knowledge of statistics and computer science is necessary as is programming in R or Python. Opportunities are also available for the research assistant to be involved in supervised clinical and neurocognitive assessments. Further clinical shadowing is also possible throughout the hospital. Current projects include: digital phenotyping in smartphone usage for patients with psychosis, developing and testing a smartphone application platform for mental health used in the US, India, and Canada, and digital phenotyping for child psychiatry.
