Center for Research on Emotion, Stress, and Technology (CREST)
Welcome to the homepage for the
Center for Research on Emotion, Stress, and Technology at the
University of Vermont. We are an interdisciplinary team who
conducts research on traumatic stress. Our main objective is to find
ways to reduce the distress many experience after a trauma and prevent
chronic suffering. To achieve this challenging goal, we integrate
methods from psychology, neuroscience, computer science, and robotics.
Interested in Joining Our Team?
We are always interested in meeting
new motivated team members with an interest in psychology, computer
science, or a related field.
