Research Interests

Paul Krebs, PhD, is Assistant Professor in the Division of General Internal Medicine and a Clinical Psychologist at the VA New York Harbor. His research focuses on extending the reach of tobacco cessation and health behavior change strategies, especially among cancer patients and persons with a mental health diagnosis. He is particularly interested in the use of technologies to facilitate behavior change and has received NIH funding to create an online intervention to promote physical activity and improved dietary practices among cancer survivors, as well as a video game to model coping skills for tobacco cessation. His published research examines the quality of life and health outcomes among cancer survivors, the design of the game-based relapse prevention intervention, and meta-analyses addressing the efficacy of behavioral interventions related to cancer prevention and symptom control. Dr. Krebs completed his undergraduate training at the University of Scranton, followed by a PhD in Clinical Psychology at the University of Rhode Island, and a post-doctoral fellowship at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.
