Edens Family Assistant Professor of Behavioral and Social Sciences


Tyler Wray is the Edens Family Chair in Healthcare Communications & Technology at the Brown University School of Public Health and leads the School's academic programs in digital health and behavior. His research explores various ways technology can be used to help people make healthier decisions  and lead healthier lifestyles. His interests generally fall into three main areas: (1) just-in-time and adaptive interventions, (2) motivating behavior change using technology, and (3) designing user experiences that create the best environment for behavior change. Although much of Dr. Wray's work so far has mostly addressed these issues in the context of HIV and substance abuse prevention/care, his interests span a broad range of health behaviors and behavior changes.
