Dr. Jacoby's clinical and research interests are broadly focused on the nature and treatment of OCD and anxiety disorders, including specific interests in psychological mechanisms of change in exposure-based therapies as well as treatment augmentation strategies that capitalize on these mechanisms (e.g., inhibitory learning approaches, repetitive negative thinking). She is also interested in improving the understanding and behavioral/psychophysiological measurement of transdiagnostic psychological processes (e.g., intolerance of uncertainty, attentional/cognitive control) utilizing multi-method approaches (e.g., attentional disengagement eye-tracking tasks, behavioral economic decision-making paradigms, biometric indices of autonomic arousal). Dr. Jacoby is currently funded by a Career Development Award (K23) from the National Institute of Mental Health examining attentional/cognitive control as a mechanism in the transdiagnostic treatment of repetitive negative thinking. She was a 2017 recipient of the International OCD Foundation (IOCDF) Young Investigator Research Award and a 2018 recipient of the Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA) Alies Muskin Career Development Leadership Program Award.
