Jasmine Mote, PhD
Curriculum Vitae; Website: jasminemote.com
Dr. Mote is a post-doctoral research associate in the AMP Lab. She is interested in understanding and improving the social and emotional lives of people with serious mental illness. Her work attempts to answer questions such as: What motivates us to be social? What do the social lives of people with serious mental illness look like, and how can they be improved? How do people with serious mental illness experience pleasure, and what strategies can help them experience more? How can being more specific about how we feel help us achieve our goals? She is interested in the development and evaluation of novel psychosocial treatments that address loneliness, social and community functioning, and physical health outcomes for people with serious mental illness. She is also interested in the ways that mobile technologies can be utilized to help better understand and address these concerns in people with and without mental illness. She received a PhD in Clinical Psychology from the University of California, Berkeley and a BA in psychology from Oberlin College.

Samuel Abplanalp, BA
Sam is a fourth-year PhD student in the Rehabilitation Sciences program at Sargent College. He earned his bachelor’s degree in psychology from Purdue University at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) in Indianapolis, IN. He is mainly interested in the application of sophisticated quantitative methods (e.g., structural equation modeling, multilevel modeling, bifactor modeling) to better understand psychological constructs and phenomena, particularly relating to psychopathology and serious mental illness (e.g., schizophrenia). A secondary interest of Sam's focuses on the interface between pain and motivation, and how we can use pain to better understand motivational processes.
