Dr. Mote is the Director of the Mote Emotion & Social Health (MESH) Lab at Tufts University. Her work is focused on understanding and addressing the emotional and social difficulties of people with and without serious mental illness. For example, she is interested in understanding what contributes to loneliness and social isolation in people with serious mental illness. She is also interested in ways that people with serious mental illness experience emotion differently than others. She utilizes ecological momentary assessment, psychophysiology, neuroimaging, and other quantitative and qualitative methods to help answer these and other questions. Further, she is interested in the development and evaluation of novel psychosocial treatments that address loneliness and social connection in people with and without mental health concerns, with a focus on community-based and digital health interventions.
