Brynn Huguenel, Ph.D. is a Post-Doctoral Fellow in psychology with the Center for OCD and Related Disorders (CORD). She completed her undergraduate degree at Boston College and her doctorate degree in clinical psychology at Loyola University Chicago. During graduate school, Brynn received training in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) in a variety of settings, including the University of Chicago Medical Center’s Adult CBT and the Addictive, Impulsive, and Compulsive Disorders programs. Clinically, she is interested in the assessment and treatment of OCD and anxiety disorders, including transdiagnostic processes. Her research aims to improve the accessibility of evidence-based mental health treatment through the development, implementation, and evaluation of intervention programs, particularly digital technologies.
Clinical and Research Fellows
Emily E. Bernstein, Ph.D. is a Hope Post-Doctoral Fellow in psychology with the Center for OCD and Related Disorders (CORD). She completed her doctorate in clinical psychology at Harvard University. Her research centers on transdiagnostic mechanisms in the development and treatment of emotional disorders. She is particularly interested in emotional flexibility, or why some people struggle with prolonged emotional responses, while others can more quickly adjust to stressors. Her current work focuses on identifying modifiable causal mechanisms contributing to emotion dysregulation and developing novel interventions (e.g., brief interventions, digital tools, and health behaviors) to target these processes.
Joshua E. Curtiss, Ph.D., is a post-doctoral fellow in psychology with the Center for OCD and Related Disorders (CORD), as well as with the Depression Clinical & Research Program (DCRP). He completed his doctoral program in clinical psychology at Boston University. As a clinical scientist, his research interests pertain to leveraging state-of-the-art statistical approaches to address questions relating to the nosology and treatment of emotional disorders. Specifically, his research embraces statistical procedures that foster idiographic and precision medicine approaches to clinical psychology (e.g., machine learning, intensive time-series approaches, network theory, etc.). Additionally, he has substantive interests in emotion regulation and mindfulness research.
Adam Jaroszewski, Ph.D. is a Post-Doctoral Fellow in psychology with the Center for OCD and Related Disorders (CORD). He completed his doctorate in clinical psychology at Harvard University. During graduate school, Adam gained clinical training at MGH’s Home Base program, Boston University’s Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders (CARD), and McLean Hospital’s OCD Institute and Gunderson Residence. Adam’s research focuses on examining the cognitive and affective factors that increase risk for the development and maintenance of self-injurious thoughts and behavior (SITB). He is particularly interested in using approaches from decision and affective science to understand why people decide to engage in SITB.
