About Us

The primary focus of the HART lab is on the etiology, maintenance, and treatment of anxiety disorders. The lab takes a transdiagnostic approach to examining behavioral, cognitive, emotional, and psychophysiological processes that underlie a variety of anxiety and related disorders, including social anxiety disorder, panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, misophonia, and specific phobias.

The secondary emphasis of the lab pertains to the intersection of anxiety and health, and in particular, how anxiety pathology may contribute to engagement in maladaptive health behaviors (e.g., substance use) and exacerbate medical conditions (e.g., dermatological disorders). Within these critical domains, the lab aims to: (1) enhance our understanding of anxiety pathology in at-risk populations; and (2) translate scientific knowledge into the development, evaluation, and dissemination of brief, targeted anxiety interventions to optimize treatment outcomes and increase access to care.
