Matthew R. Cribbet, PhD
Dr. Cribbet is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at The University of Alabama. Dr. Cribbet completed post-doctoral training in Translational Research in Sleep Medicine at The University of Pittsburgh. He received a PhD in Clinical Health Psychology from The University of Utah in 2013, a MS in Clinical Health Psychology from The University of Utah in 2009, and a BS in Psychology from The Ohio State University in 2004.
His work is highly interdisciplinary, as he employs theory and methods from clinical psychology, health psychology and sleep science to understand how poor sleep, stress and emotion dysregulation are associated with cardiovascular disease risk. He studies these risk factors for cardiovascular disease among individuals and within the context of close relationships such as marriage. He is also interested in understanding the mechanisms linking early life adverse experiences such as abuse and neglect to physical health. Dr. Cribbet serves as an associate editor for the journal Behavioral Medicine.
Dr. Cribbet WILL BE accepting a new graduate student for the Fall 2021 cycle.
