Stephen Schueller is an Assistant Professor of Preventive Medicine and a faculty member of Northwestern’s Center for Behavioral Intervention Technologies (CBITs). His research focuses on improving the accessibility and availability of mental health resources through technology. In this work, he is strongly interested in issues of design, evaluation, and implementation of behavioral intervention technologies. He has worked on in diverse populations and settings including clinical treatment settings, schools, and homeless populations. He is the Executive Director of PsyberGuide, an effort to provide unbiased information regarding the effectiveness and usefulness of behavioral intervention technologies for mental health. His methodological work examines unique concerns that arise in the evaluation of behavioral intervention technologies (like websites and apps) that might continuously change during the course of a research evaluation. He is interested in the role of user-centered design in the creation of eHealth/mHealth tools and implications of design principles to the continued deployment, iteration, and evaluation of such tools.
