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. See our lab website (hartlab.olemiss.edu) for more information about current work.
Dr. Dixon plans to accept a graduate student for the 2021-2022 academic year.
