Research Overview

Anthony Lemieux is a Visiting Associate Professor for the School of Medicine in the Department of Pediatrics. He earned his Ph.D. and M.A. in Social Psychology at the University of Connecticut, and his B.A. in Psychology and Sociology at Boston College. Prior to joining the Emory community, he served as an Associate Professor of Psychology at Purchase College, State University of New York, where he chaired the University’s Strategic Planning Committee. At Emory, he will be working to build and expand research collaborations, with a focus on adolescent health behavior including HIV prevention and intervention, as well as motivations for and responses to terrorism that involves colleagues in the School of Medicine and the Rollins School of Public Health.

The areas of his experience and research reflect a diversity of interests and methodological approaches that provide a transferable set of knowledge, skills, and abilities including research and intervention development and evaluation. Dr. Lemieux’s areas of research include the psychology of health behavior (with a focus on HIV/AIDS, and prevention among adolescents), terrorism and intergroup relations, and the psychology of music. These research areas are linked together by the fact that each offers critical opportunities to apply psychology to “real-world” issues and interventions in an impactful way. Though diverse, these research interests have resulted in interdisciplinary research programs and a wide range of publications including peer-reviewed journal articles, chapters, and white papers that have been widely distributed in the government and intelligence community.
