David D. Luxton, PhD, MS

My primary areas of research include Artificial intelligence, AI/machine ethics, behavioral health technologies, telemedicine, telehealth, forensic psychology, and military and Veteran population health.  I’ve consulted widely on the topic of military and veteran health and technology in healthcare and have helped to develop national guidelines for telemental health, clinical best practices for technology-based treatments, and standards for human-AI interaction transparency.  My vision is to build, and help others to build, technologies that help promote behavioral change and that improve the lives of people.
