Anthony Rosellini

Research Assistant Professor as of December 1, 2016
Ph.D. – Boston University

Research Assistant ProfessorDr. Rosellini begins his newly appointed position of Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Boston University in December 2016. The goal of his research is to use a combination of clinical psychological and epidemiologic methods: (i) to identify and understand the emotional and environmental factors that influence the development and persistence of anxiety and mood disorders (e.g., personality; emotion regulation; childhood adversities); and (ii) to improve the assessment and classification of anxiety and mood disorders. Dr. Rosellini’s current work involves using machine learning methods to develop optimized prediction tools that identify individuals at risk of anxiety and mood disorder onset and chronicity. This work is supported by a NIMH Career Development Award.

Dr. Rosellini received his Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Boston University. He completed his pre-doctoral internship training at the University of Mississippi Medical Center. He most recently worked as a Research Associate in the Department of Health Care Policy at Harvard Medical School, where he also completed a postdoctoral fellowship in psychiatric epidemiology. While at Harvard, Dr. Rosellini worked on several federally funded projects studying the prevalence, onset, and course of anxiety, depression, and violence (e.g., suicide; physical/sexual assault perpetration/victimization) in representative samples.
