Dr. Mohr’s work lies at the intersection of behavioral science, technology, and clinical intervention research. This research has focused on developing and evaluating eHealth and mHealth interventions aimed at treating and preventing depression, improving symptom management among patients with chronic illnesses, and increasing adherence to medications. He is particularly interested in understanding how people interact with behavioral intervention technologies, and how the design of the technologies can optimize behavior change and improve clinical outcomes. He is also interested in factors that promote adherence to these intervention technologies.
