The Businelle Lab uses mobile health technologies (e.g., ecological momentary assessments, passive sensor data) to improve understanding of relationships between environment, thoughts, feelings, and health behaviors. In addition, we develop and test innovative Just-in-Time Adaptive Interventions (JITAI) that identify and intervene upon antecedents of risk factors (e.g., smoking, heavy alcohol use, obesity, medication non-adherence) linked to cancer (primary, secondary and tertiary prevention) and other chronic diseases.
