Shirley Wang is a PhD candidate in clinical psychology with a secondary concentration in computational science and engineering at Harvard University. She has been funded by the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship Program and the NIH F31/NRSA Predoctoral Fellowship. She is currently completing her clinical internship at Massachusetts General Hospital on the CBT track, at the Center for Digital Mental Health and the Center for Precision Psychiatry. Shirley conducts computational clinical science research to advance our understanding, prediction, and prevention of suicide, nonsuicidal self-injury, and eating disorders. She is particularly interested in formal mathematical modeling of these phenomena as complex dynamical systems, and developing machine learning models for risk prediction using data from smartphones and wearables. Starting in July 2024, Shirley will join the Department of Psychology at Yale University as an Assistant Professor.

Katharine Daniel, MA is a clinical fellow in Psychology at Harvard Medical School – Massachusetts General Hospital in the Cognitive Behavioral Scientist Track. She is also a Ph.D. candidate in Clinical Psychology at the University of Virginia. Her research uses real-time monitoring and intensive longitudinal analytic methods to understand the real-world effects of anxiety and emotion dysregulation across changing contexts to inform the development of technology-assisted interventions. Alongside an interdisciplinary research team headed by Dr. Bethany Teachman and UVA’s Center for Behavioral Health and Technology, Daniel has leveraged actively and passively collected data to study the effectiveness of various mobile health interventions, including Mindtrails and SHUTi.
