In the Health Behavior Lab, we address theoretically-guided questions about how affect and cognition influence engagement in health behaviors and use knowledge of these psychological processes to develop innovative interventions to target health behavior change. The lab is directed by Austin Baldwin, a Professor in the Department of Psychology at Southern Methodist University.
Dr. Baldwin plans to admit a new PhD student during the 2023-24 application cycle for admission in Fall 2024. Interviews are typically in January with a December 1 application deadline. You can learn more about our PhD program in clinical psychology here. You can find information on current projects in the lab here and a list of recent publications here. We welcome students and scholars who are from populations historically underrepresented in psychological science and academia.
