Postdoctoral Fellow, Psychology Department, Harvard University

I am interested in factors that influence our unconscious behaviors (e.g., implicit social beliefs) and conditions under which these unintentional behaviors can be malleable.

Hilary Weingarden

Staff Psychologist, OCD and Related Disorders Program, Massachusetts General Hospital
Instructor in Psychology, HMS

My research interests are broadly focused on cognitive and emotional risk factors for poor psychosocial outcomes (e.g., depression, suicide risk, functional impairment) in individuals with obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and body dysmorphic disorder (BDD). I have recently extended this research to better understand risk factors for poor psychosocial outcomes among medical patients who are facing changes to their physical appearance due to illness. Additionally, I am interested in issues of access to empirically supported treatments and how technology may be used to improve treatment access.
