Behavioral Indications of Depression Severity


In collaboration with Massachusetts General Hospital, we are conducting a clinical trial exploring objective methods for assessing depression and its severity. 

We are challenging the assessment methods that were created decades ago and which rely mostly on self-reported measures. We are including information from wearable sensors and regular sensors in mobile phones to collect information about sleep, social interaction, and location changes to find behavioral patterns that are associated with depressive symptoms.

This research is supported by National Institute of Health, MIT-MGH Grand Challenge, and MIT J-Clinic.
