Biography

Kyler Knapp’s research focuses on the dynamic psychological, emotional, and social processes that contribute to addiction recovery success on a daily basis. Through the analysis of intensive longitudinal data collected via ecological momentary assessment and wearable devices, he seeks to understand the individual and environmental factors that reduce risk for relapse and support wellbeing at the within-person level, as well as individual differences in these within-person processes. Kyler is also working to help individuals build recovery through the development of more effective, accessible, and personalized mobile interventions that both help people in moments of crisis and promote sustainable, long-term support. 

The Prevention and Methodology Training Program (PAMT) program, funded by a T32 grant from the National Institute on Drug Abuse, trains pre- and post-doctoral researchers in the integration of prevention science and statistical methodology for the behavioral sciences.
