Promoting Sexual Health: Mechanisms and Interventions
Tuesday, March 26, 2019
After providing a brief outline of my approach to treatment development, I will review my ongoing work on the identification of mechanisms that are relevant to sexual health, particularly in women. Treatment development requires a nuanced understanding of the factors that drive change. Focusing specifically on heart rate variability and sexual self-schemas, I will discuss the development of innovative psychosocial treatments that intervene on those mechanisms. I will review examples to illustrate the transition from laboratory-based experiments that test putative mechanisms to clinical trials that aim to engage mechanisms and produce clinically meaningful change. As I will clarify in the presentation, the findings of these studies not only highlight the promise of these treatments with respect to sexual health but also validate the usefulness of a mechanism-driven approach to intervention development. I will conclude my talk by highlighting my interest in building and adapting interventions for women who are at the greatest risk for poor sexual health.

A Tale of Two Neutron Stars: From Gamma-ray Bursts to Gravitational Waves
Friday, March 15, 2019
Gamma-ray bursts are the most powerful explosions in the universe. We know today that many come from the violent deaths of massive stars, and others from the collision of two neutron stars. However, just five decades ago their origins were a confounding mystery. I will present an overview of how gamma-ray bursts, which began as a government secret, have evolved into one of our most valuable tools for studying the cosmos. This story is still unfolding, having in the past two years coalesced with another—that of the first detections of gravitational waves, made possible by the LIGO and Virgo facilities. These discoveries have initiated a shift to “multimessenger astronomy,” which means that astronomers are beginning to observe cosmic events like gamma-ray bursts with telescopes, while at the same time “listening” to their space-time vibrations.
