Dr. Michelle Chen is a neuropsychologist with a PhD in Clinical Psychology from Yeshiva University and postdoctoral training at Kessler Foundation.
Her research involves utilizing digital and sensor technology in the assessment and treatment of cognitive dysfunction and other neurological symptoms.
She is the recipient of a K23 Mentored Career Development Award funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), studying the impact of health and lifestyle risk factors for cognitive decline among persons with MS.
Her long-term goal in this line of research is to develop digital lifestyle interventions aimed at improving cognition.
Recently, Dr. Chen received the Collaborative Multidisciplinary Award from the Rutgers University Research Council, investigating real-world physiological biomarkers of post-COVID fatigue using a wearable sensor. Such physiological biomarkers have the potential to improve remote monitoring of fatigue and facilitate just-in-time adaptive interventions that can be delivered remotely through mobile devices.
