Dr. Levinson will be considering applications for the 2023-2024 academic year. The best fit will be students who have worked 1-2 years as a research coordinator or have a masters. I am looking for students who are interested in working with existing data on a) the personalization of treatment using idiographic methods, b) the adaptation of exposure therapy to eating disorders, and/or c) analysis of data from wearable sensors.
