Edens Family Assistant Professor of Behavioral and Social Sciences

Overview

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.

For prospective doctoral students and postdocs: Dr. Wray is considering new students and fellows who are committed to working on issues related to technology, behavior change, and health. Those with strong technical backgrounds are especially encouraged. Feel free to email with information about your experience and goals.
