Assistant Professor of Psychology
Matthew Price, Assistant Professor of Psychology, is originally from New York, New York. He completed a bachelor's degree in psychology at the State University of New York at Binghamton (2004), and he received his master's degree (2006) and doctorate (2011) in clinical psychology from Georgia State University. His research during graduate school focused on understanding mechanisms of response in technology-facilitated treatment for anxiety disorders. During his clinical internship (2011) and post-doctoral fellowship (2011-2013) at the National Crime Victims Center at the Medical University of South Carolina, his work shifted towards the use of technology in mental healthcare for victims of trauma.
The broad focus of Matthew's research is to develop and evaluate novel strategies to improve access to mental health treatment. This work relies primarily on the use of widely available technologies to provide early intervention to individuals shortly after they have experienced a trauma. As part of this work, he has used virtual reality, telemedicine, web-based interventions, and mobile devices. He is excited to continue his multidisciplinary research at UVM.
Matthew and his wife are looking forward to moving to Vermont to enjoy the mountains, fall foliage, and trying many new flavors of ice cream.
