Research Interests

Dr. Rosellini received his Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Boston University and completed a postdoctoral fellowship in psychiatric epidemiology at Harvard Medical School. The goal of his research is to use psychological and epidemiological methods: (i) to identify and understand the emotional (e.g., personality; emotion regulation) and environmental factors (e.g., childhood adversities) that influence the development and persistence of anxiety and mood symptoms; and (ii) to improve the assessment and classification of anxiety and mood. His current work involves using machine learning methods to develop optimized prediction tools that identify individuals at risk of anxiety and mood disorders.
