Predoctoral Trainees

Jesse Boggis

Jesse Boggis, MPH

I am a PhD student and NIH T-32 predoctoral trainee at the Center for Technology and Behavioral Health (CTBH). I have a Master’s in Public Health degree from Boston University and most recently managed a NIH-funded multi-site randomized clinical trial aimed to enhance access to naloxone, syringes, and buprenorphine. At CTBH, I am mentored by Dr. Lisa Marsch and contribute towards The Northeast Node of the National Drug Abuse Treatment Clinical Trials Network. My research will examine overdose risk and access to medications for opioid use disorder for people who use opioids. I am interested in utilizing community-based participatory approaches to mixed methods research design. Outside of the office, you can find me at a local syringe service program, in the woods with my dog, or traveling abroad.


Matthew Nemesure, MS

I am a graduate student in the Quantitative Biomedical Sciences program through the Geisel School of Medicine and my advisor is Dr. Nicholas Jacobson. The main focus of my research is applying advanced computational techniques, specifically machine learning approaches, to assist in the diagnosis, treatment and understanding of mental disorders. Prior to coming to Dartmouth, I received my Bachelor’s degree in Integrative Neuroscience from Binghamton University in 2017. Following graduation, I worked as a research technician at Upstate Medical University before coming to Dartmouth in 2018.


Enzo Plaitano, BA, NRP

I am a PhD student at The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice. My main research examines digital-behavioral therapeutics for young adults with type 1 diabetes with my advisor, Dr. Catherine Stanger. I am interested in using interactive smartphone applications, digital health coaching, and behavior change technologies to help patients manage their acute and chronic health conditions. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Neuroscience from Boston University and a Professional Degree in Paramedicine from the University of Pittsburgh Center for Emergency Medicine. I love working as both a paramedic and clinical researcher, as my patients often inspire new research interests and drive my projects back to the lab. My free time is often spent traveling to new places or outside skiing and hiking the northeast!
