Erich studied in the College of Arts & Sciences interested in clinical psychology, public health, and health education. He joined the Center for Behavioral Technology in early Fall 2017 as a University Internship Program Clinical Research Assistant. He enjoys communicating with patients and clients in intervention studies, as well as performing evaluation and data analysis for those interventions. Combining his interests in both psychology and public health, he hopes to further understand the influence of technology in promoting mental and physical well-being. Outside of the CBHT, Erich is a Peer Health Educator and community health researcher with Jefferson Public Citizens.

In the summer 2018 Erich started an internship at the Wilford Hall Ambulatory Surgical Center at Lackland AFB in San Antonio, TX. He was placed in the Sleep Medicine Clinic where he will be assisting with research on sleep disorders and sleep-related trauma in active duty military members. As part of the program, Erich will continue for three years following graduation, during which time he will also be pursuing a Master of Science in Clinical & Translational Research.
