Research Interests

Dr. Mohr received his PhD in Clinical Psychology from the University of Arizona. He was on the faculty at the University of California, San Francisco from 1994 to 2006, when he moved to join the Department of Preventive Medicine at Northwestern University. He is the founder and director of the Center for Behavioral Intervention Technologies (CBITs). Dr. Mohr has been elected as a Fellow of the American Psychological Association and of the Society for Behavioral Medicine.

Dr. Mohr’s work focuses on the design and implementation of digital mental health treatments that fit into the fabric of people’s lives and can be sustainably implemented in real-world settings. His research integrates user centered design processes to incorporate stakeholder input into the creation and evaluation of digital mental health services. He is also examining methods of harnessing sensor data from devices such as smartphones to identify behaviors, states, and environmental conditions, and using these to design digital mental health tools that are more effective and easier for people to use.
