Theodore Cosco

As director of the Precision Mental Health Lab, I provide strategic direction and operational oversight. I am passionate about mental health research, technology development, and democratization. Using a transdisciplinary approach implementing both qualitative and quantitative methods, I’m interested in developing strategies for how we can be happier and healthier for longer. For my contributions to the field, I received the Early Career Achievement Award from the American Psychological Association, the Stan Maes Early Career Award from the European Health Psychology Society, as well as the Canadian Association on Gerontology’s Recognition Award for Excellence in Longitudinal Research and New Investigator Award. In addition, I am honoured to be a Michael Smith Health Research BC Scholar. When I’m not pacing around my office drinking luke-warm black coffee, you’ll find me chasing salmonids with a fly rod or cooking over an open fire.
