Current Research

Dr. Dallery is broadly interested in choice and decision making, with a special emphasis on quantitative models of operant behavior and applications to drug abuse and risky behavior.  He is also interested in optimizing incentive-based interventions to promote smoking cessation using technology-based tools.  He is also interested in technology (e.g., wearable sensors, mHealth) for assessment, theory development and testing, intervention delivery, and reducing health disparities.
