Matthew K. Nock

Matthew K. Nock

Dr. Matthew Nock was born and raised in New Jersey. He received his BA from Boston University (1995), followed by two masters (2000, 2001) and a PhD from Yale University (2003). Matt also completed a clinical internship at Bellevue Hospital and the New York University Child Study Center (2003). Dr. Nock joined the faculty of Harvard University in 2003 and has been there ever since, currently serving as a Professor in the Department of Psychology. While an undergraduate student, Matt became very interested in the question of why people do things to intentionally harm themselves and he has been conducting research aimed at answering this question ever since. Matthew's research is multidisciplinary in nature and uses a range of methodological approaches (e.g., laboratory-based experiments, epidemiologic surveys, and clinic-based studies) to better understand how these behaviors develop, how to prevent their occurrence and how to predict them. Matt's work is funded by research grants from the Department of Defense, National Institutes of Health, and several private foundations. Matt’s research has been published in over hundred scientific papers and textbook chapters and has been recognized through the receipt of awards from the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies, American Psychological Association, and the American Association of Suicidology. In 2011 he received a MacArthur Fellowship (aka, “Genius Grant”) in recognition of his research on self-harm and suicide. At Harvard, Dr. Nock teaches courses on various topics including statistics, research methods, psychopathology, and cultural diversity. He has received numerous teaching and mentoring awards including the Petra Shattuck Prize and the Roslyn Abramson Teaching Award.
