Jonathan Stange is a clinical psychologist and an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Illinois at Chicago. His research focuses on identifying mechanisms and outcomes of inflexible cognitive and affective processes in mood disorders. His current work seeks to identify how disrupted interactions between cognitive and affective processes may underlie maladaptive affect regulation in individuals at risk for problems such as depression and suicide. This work combines the use of fMRI, autonomic psychophysiology, and behavior, both in the lab and in the “real world” with ambulatory assessment methods, with the goal of identifying mechanisms of risk and targets for intervention to improve affect regulation. Dr. Stange completed his PhD in clinical psychology at Temple University in Philadelphia, along with a clinical internship and postdoctoral fellowship in neuroimaging at UIC. His current research is funded by a K23 award from NIMH, a NARSAD Young Investigator Award from the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation, a Visionary Grant from the American Psychological Foundation, and by a Health Promotion and Disease Prevention grant from the Portes Foundation and Institute of Medicine of Chicago.
