Payton is a current doctoral candidate in Clinical Science at Harvard. He is interested in machine learning and other statistical approaches to mental health. His research focuses on using network analysis to predict the onset of depressive and manic episodes and to study psychopathology broadly (depression, OCD, social anxiety, complicated grief, body dysmorphia, eating disorders, and obesity). He is also interested in how modern sociocultural attitudes and practices (e.g., social media, trigger warnings) impact psychopathology and how these factors relate to increasing rates of depression and anxiety.
