Sarah Adut: In research, I am interested in people's experiences with unwanted thinking; specifically the effects of beliefs, interpretations, and attributions of intrusive thoughts in obsessive-compulsive symptomatology. I am also interested in exploring the role of social support and mechanisms of change in mental health technology interventions.

Robert Fite: My primary interest centers around a bias known as thought-action fusion. Specifically, my research investigates the development, measurement, and symptomatic outcome of thought-action fusion. I am also interested in the overlap between psychopathology and chronic health conditions. To this end, I hope to investigate different mechanisms which may be targeted in interventions with the hope of improving treatment adherence, quality of life, and psychopathology.

Annika Goldman: I am interested in researching older adults' unique psychological risk and protective factors and how they can be integrated into theories of unwanted thinking. Specifically, I am interested in how subjective cognitive concerns may influence older adult's experience of unwanted intrusive thoughts. I am also interested in examining the efficacy of different treatments, such as mindfulness, for late-life psychopathology.

Kelechi Uzoegwu: My research focuses on the etiology and maintenance of intrusive thoughts. Specifically, I am interested in factors that predict and influence faulty interpretations of intrusive thoughts in the context of obsessive-compulsive and related disorders. I am also interested in exploring cognitive strategies that may influence misappraisals and reappraisals of intrusive thoughts.
