Dr. Amanda Collins is a T32 postdoctoral research fellow in the Center for Technology and Behavioral Health at Dartmouth College. She received her PhD in Clinical Psychology from Mississippi State University and completed her predoctoral clinical internship at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center. At Mississippi State University, she worked with Dr. E Samuel Winer to investigate reward devaluation and self-referential processing in depressed individuals using network analysis and meta-analytic techniques. Dr. Collins is currently working with Dr. Nick Jacobson and is primarily interested in using intensive longitudinal data to investigate how changes in positivity appraisals and affect can predict depression and co-occurring disorders. She is also interested in developing digital interventions to target reward devaluation and reduced positive affect in depression and co-occurring disorders.
