Dr. Jasmine Mote is a licensed clinical psychologist and researcher. She is an Assistant Professor in Occupational Therapy and Psychology at Tufts University and director of the Mote Emotion and Social Health (MESH) Lab. Her research focuses on understanding and addressing the emotional and social difficulties of people living with serious mental illness. She uses ecological momentary assessment, mobile technology, and psychophysiology to help answer questions such as, “How can we help people with serious mental illness feel less lonely?” and “In what ways do people with serious mental illness experience emotion (in their minds, in their bodies) differently than others?” She also serves as an editor for The Professor Is In and writes a semi-regular newsletter, Mental Healthy, where she discusses mental health science related to pregnancy and parenting.
She received her B.A. in Psychology from Oberlin College and her M.A. in Psychology and Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of California, Berkeley. In her free time you can find her baking, running, talking about mental health and pop culture, or binge-watching movies/TV shows. She lives in Somerville, MA.
