Dr. Dror Ben-Zeev is a faculty member in the Department of Psychiatry
at The Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth and a licensed Clinical Psychologist.
He leads a program of research focusing on the use of Mobile Health (mHealth)
approaches in the study, assessment, and treatment of individuals
with serious mental illness, integration of effective health technologies
in systems of mental health care, and development of
psychosocial interventions for psychosis. Dr. Ben-Zeev’s group is actively
developing and testing several smartphone applications for self-management of
schizophrenia, multi-modal sensing systems for detection of predictors of
psychotic relapse, mobile platforms for assessment of violence and suicidality
in patients with psychiatric illnesses and co-occurring substance use
disorders, and training of “mobile interventionists” that leverage mobile
technologies for real-time/real-place service provision in outpatient and
inpatient clinical settings. His research has been supported by several grants
from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Science Foundation (NSF),
Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI), and a career development
award from the Dartmouth SYNERGY Clinical and Translational Science Institute.
In 2013 Dr. Ben-Zeev received a EUREKA grant award from the National Institute
of Mental Health designed to support especially innovative,
high-risk/high-reward research.
