Ross MacLean Ph.D.


Dr. MacLean defended his dissertation (“Reward function as a mechanism linking personality and intermittent smoking”) in August, 2014. His project was an innovative study that combined laboratory measures and ecological momentary assessment to examine associations among personality, reward-related decision making, and smoking behavior in young adults who use cigarettes on a nondaily basis. He completed a predoctoral internship in clinical psychology at the West Haven Campus of the VA Connecticut Healthcare System. Dr. MacLean is currently a clinical psychologist in the VA Connecticut Healthcare System and an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry at the Yale School of Medicine.
