Andrew M. Sherrill, Ph.D. is an assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences and a practicing clinical psychologist at the Emory Healthcare Veterans Program and the Emory Healthcare OCD Program. He is also the program manager of the Emory University Prolonged Exposure Consultant Training Program. He received a PhD in clinical psychology from Northern Illinois University. He completed his predoctoral internship at the American Lake Division of VA Puget Sound Healthcare System and his postdoctoral fellowship at Emory University School of Medicine. Dr. Sherrill’s clinical expertise includes behavior therapies for trauma- and anxiety-related disorders including prolonged exposure for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), exposure and response prevention for obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and acceptance and commitment therapy for a range of emotion disorders. His areas of specialization include the use of virtual reality in exposure therapies and the implementation of massed delivered evidence-based psychotherapy. His current research aims to understand effective dissemination and implementation of exposure therapy and the development of mobile technologies that facilitate exposure therapy through pervasive health strategies in the areas of ubiquitous computing, human-computer interaction, and machine learning.
