Michael F. ArmeyAssistant Professor of Psychiatry and Human Behavior (Research)
I am an Assistant Professor (Research) in the Psychosocial Research Program at Butler Hospital, with a faculty appointment in the Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior at the Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University.
My program of research has focused on the use of complementary multi-method procedures to characterize the phenomenology and presumed mechanisms of suicidal and non-suicidal self-injury behavior, with the goal of applying these findings to novel treatment development. Specifically, the core of my program of research has focused on ecological momentary assessment (EMA), applied first to the study of non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) and now expanded to the study of suicidal ideation and behavior. Building on the naturalistic in vivo strengths of EMA, my work has more recently incorporated a number of laboratory-based bio-behavioral (e.g., psychophysiology, eye-tracking, and behavioral tasks) and implicit bias assessment and eye-tracking paradigms to enrich models detailing the underpinnings of suicidality. Finally, I have begun to apply findings from my EMA research to the development of an Ecological Momentary Intervention (i.e. technology delivered treatment) for suicide risk.
