Dr. Jesse Dallery received his Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Emory University in 1999. After a postdoctoral appointment in the Behavioral Pharmacology Research Unit at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, he joined the Department of Psychology at the University of Florida in 2000. He attained the rank of professor in 2012. Dr. Dallery’s research is translational in nature and has addressed a wide range of topics, including human laboratory studies of choice and decision making; addiction; nicotine and smoking; contingency management for smoking cessation, physical inactivity, and medication adherence; mathematical models of operant behavior and intertemporal choice; and matching theory. A unifying theme for much of his work is the development of technology-based interventions to promote health-related behavior. He has studied smoking from several perspectives, including analyses based on the Matching Law, development of home-based measurement of smoking biomarkers, and development of Internet- and technology-based contingency management systems. Dr. Dallery regularly publishes in both basic and applied journals, and his work has been funded by a series of major grants from the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Dr. Dallery has made significant contributions to a wide variety of journals, including service as associate editor of The Behavior Analyst, the Journal of Applied Behavior Analysis, and Behavioural Processes. At the University of Florida, he teaches a range of courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels, and he has mentored numerous doctoral students.
