Daniel Fulford, Ph.D., is a research psychologist at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation Research Institute (PAMFRI) and adjunct assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF). Prior to joining PAMFRI, Dr. Fulford completed his clinical residency at the VA San Diego Healthcare System and research fellowship at UCSF.
An overarching theme of Dr. Fulford’s research centers on identification, prevention, and treatment of mental illness, with additional interest in the use of evidence-based behavioral interventions to increase motivation for self-management across a variety of health problems. He has conducted clinical and translational research to understand predictors of onset and developmental course of mood and psychotic disorders, with interest in psychosocial intervention development and implementation, in the hopes of improving patients’ functioning and quality of life. Much of this work has involved the use of advanced statistics and methods, including multilevel modeling, structural equation modeling, and ecological momentary assessment.
In 2013, Dr. Fulford joined PAMFRI as a K12 Scholar, funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ; Principal Investigator; Harold Luft), to conduct pragmatic patient-centered outcomes research. Here he expands his background in experimental research on mechanisms in psychopathology to conducting health services research in primary care settings, with a particular focus on adolescent and young adult patients with mental illness and adults with chronic conditions. He is currently contributing to projects that involve the evaluation of quality improvement efforts and examination of electronic health records (EHR) data to improve healthcare quality for patients in need.
After receiving his BA in psychology at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Dr. Fulford conducted research examining the effectiveness of evidence-based interventions for youth with depression and anxiety in school settings. He obtained a PhD in clinical psychology at the University of Miami, conducting experimental research on mechanisms of the onset and course of severe mental illnesses, including bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. He is a member of several national and international professional organizations, and has served as ad hoc reviewer for peer-reviewed journals including Health and Quality of Life Outcomes, Journal of Abnormal Psychology, and PLOS ONE, among others. In addition to his research pursuits, Dr. Fulford is a licensed clinical psychologist in the state of California.
