Sherecce Fields, Ph.D., is a Professor in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Texas A&M University. Dr. Fields’ primary degree is in Clinical Psychology from the University of South Florida with areas of specialization in Child Clinical and Pediatric Psychology.
She joined the faculty at Texas A&M University in 2010. Her teaching focuses on critically evaluating the science of psychology and health behavior.
Her current research focuses on behavioral decision-making (with an emphasis on impulsivity) as a trans-disease process in health risk behaviors. Her research draws attention to self-regulatory and self-control pathways to behavior, modeling their causes and consequences to inform intervention efforts better. Specifically, she is interested in how behavioral decision-making and other family process and psychosocial factors interact to affect prevention and treatment outcomes for health behaviors.
Dr. Fields’ research has recently focused on developing interventions for substance use, obesity, and diabetes using digital health technologies, including video games and other computer-mediated communication technologies.
Her laboratory is the Health Behavior Research Group (HBRG). HBRG is a 4-room, state-of-the-art, community-based clinical research laboratory. HBRG is uniquely organized to support the full spectrum of clinical research, from human laboratory models to large-scale treatment-outcome studies.
Dr. Fields has over 50 publications, proceedings, and abstracts. She has been PI or Co-PI for over one million dollars in funded research from NIH, NSF, and other agencies.
Dr. Fields was the 2016-2018 recipient of the Ray A. Rothrock ’77 Fellow award from the College of Liberal Arts and is a Fellow of the Association for Psychological Science.
