Hassan works on the neuroscience project of the Midlife in the United States (MIDUS) study, which uses fMRI and psychophysiological measures to examine individuals' emotion regulation in relation to their overall biological and psychological well-being. He is also part of the Wisconsin Registry for Alzheimer’s Prevention (WRAP) project, which examines the nature of emotions and emotion regulation in individuals at risk Alzheimer’s Disease.
Previously, Hassan used ecological momentary assessment (EMA), as well as biomarker measures, to examine substance use and health behaviors among college students, with a special focus on prescription medication use and misuse.
