I received my BA in Psychology from the University of California, Los Angeles, and my MS and PhD degrees from the University of Miami, FL. I completed a NIMH-funded postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of California, San Francisco.
I am a clinical psychologist whose research centers on uncovering mechanisms involved in human motivation—the drive to set, strive for, and accomplish goals—and how an improved understanding of these mechanisms can help us identify barriers to goal attainment. I use both experimental studies conducted in laboratory settings, as well as ambulatory assessment done in the “real-world,” to better understand barriers to motivation and participation across a variety of health problems, including serious mental illness (e.g., schizophrenia and bipolar disorder). I am also passionate about translating research findings through the design and implementation of evidence-based behavioral interventions.
