Dr. Dixon’s research emphasizes: (1) the use of experimental psychopathology approaches to study transdiagnostic mechanisms underlying anxiety pathology; (2) the systematic identification and evaluation of cognitive and emotional vulnerability factors (e.g., anxiety sensitivity, emotion regulation) that may exacerbate anxiety disorders and related health conditions, such as dermatological disorders; and (3) the development, evaluation, and dissemination of brief, targeted anxiety interventions to optimize treatment outcomes and increase access to care.
