Dr. Fisher received his doctorate from the Pennsylvania State University and joined the Clinical Science faculty at UC Berkeley after a postdoctoral fellowship at Stanford. The broad goal of Dr. Fisher’s research is to understand psychopathology as a set of dynamic processes – in which thoughts, feelings, and actions are idiosyncratically organized within each individual. To this end he leverages intensive repeated measures data to better understand within-individual processes that inform psychotherapy and psychopathology. He employs salivary measures in experimental and ecological paradigms to investigate the physiological and endocrinological correlates of depression, anxiety, and trauma.
