Matthew's research is multidisciplinary in nature and uses a range of methodological approaches (e.g., laboratory-based experiments, epidemiologic surveys, and clinic-based studies) to better understand how these behaviors develop, how to prevent their occurrence and how to predict them. Matt's work is funded by research grants from the Department of Defense, National Institutes of Health, and several private foundations. Matt’s research has been published in over hundred scientific papers and textbook chapters and has been recognized through the receipt of awards from the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies, American Psychological Association, and the American Association of Suicidology. In 2011 he received a MacArthur Fellowship (aka, “Genius Grant”) in recognition of his research on self-harm and suicide.
