Dr. Dennis (Ph.D., Pennsylvania State University) is a Professor in the Psychology Department at Hunter College, The City University of New York. Trained in clinical psychology and neuroscience, she is interested in how emotions and thoughts work together to promote well-being and stress resilience but, conversely, can create vulnerability for mental illness such as mood and anxiety disorders. Her research focuses on identifying neurocognitive signatures of emotional disruptions with an eye towards improving early detection, creating more targeted treatment approaches, and better predicting treatment response. She also focuses on translation of neuroscience findings on the anxious brain to the development of low-barrier and effective treatment approaches, including mobile mental health interventions for stress and anxiety.
