Core Faculty

Alexandra M. Psihogios, PhD is a core faculty member at the Center for Pediatric Clinical Effectiveness (CPCE) at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), a psychologist and behavioral scientist in the Division of Oncology at CHOP, and an assistant professor of psychiatry at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania.

Dr. Psihogios' research program is centered on improving health outcomes for adolescents and young adults (AYA) with cancer and other chronic medical conditions by targeting a modifiable health behavior — treatment nonadherence. Her research studies use state-of-the-art mobile health approaches to learn how to deliver adherence support in the moment and context that AYA need it the most, and how this information can be leveraged for personalized interventions.

Toward this goal, in 2019, Dr. Psihogios received a Mentored Clinical Scientist Research Career Development Award (K08) from the National Cancer Institute to translate ecological momentary assessment data into a just-in-time adaptive intervention for promoting oral chemotherapy adherence in AYA with leukemia.

Dr. Psihogios received her PhD in clinical psychology from Loyola University Chicago before joining CHOP for internship and fellowship.
