His work focuses on making mental health services more accessible and available through technologies. He is the Executive Director of PsyberGuide, a project funded by the One Mind, to identify and provide unbiased information about the effectiveness and usefulness of digital tools for mental health. In his work, he has explored the use of digital mental health resources in diverse contexts and populations including in clinical settings as adjuncts for clinical treatment of depression, in middle-school children and homeless youth. He also explores how these interventions can be integrated into systems of care and the importance of human support to increase engagement and benefit. He is especially interested in the prevention of depression and promotion of well-being and advancing integration of positive psychological interventions into clinical work. He has been involved in several grants from the National Institute of Mental Health including a K08, career development award, focused on integrating user-centered design methods and implementation science to design and evaluate a technology-based support system for clinical treatment of depression. He has been recognized by the Association for Psychological Science in their Class of 2016 Rising Stars and was awarded by Rising Star Award by the International Society for Research on Internet Interventions.
