III. IMPACT - In 2019 and 2020 Dr. David was included in top 2% most cited scientists in the world (in the Scopus system - analysis made by Stanford-Elsevier). GoogleScholar (27 March 2022): 12725 citations; H=60. Current research is focused on the role of cognitive mechanisms, both explicit (e.g., autobiographical memory) and implicit (e.g., implicit memory/learning; priming) in generating subjective/emotional (cognition-emotion relation), behavioral, and psycho-physiological human responses, more specifically, on the role of (a) rational/functional and irrational/dysfunctional beliefs and (b) response hopes and/or expectancies on various psychological and medical outcomes related to mental health and cancer. When clinical trials are used as research instruments - often based on cognitive behavioral psychotherapies (sometimes including cognitive hypnotherapy) - the analysis employed is typically multilevel, concerning: (1) outcomes (i.e., efficacy and/or effectiveness); (2) theory/mechanisms of change (both psychological and neurobiological); and (3) economical aspects (e.g., cost-effectiveness, cost-utility). A specific research interest is related to the use of technological developments in clinical psychology/psychotherapy (i.e., virtual/augmented reality therapy; robotherapy) and in a cross-cultural approach. Recently, a strong body of metaanalysis research (i.e. classic/IPD/network) defined Dr. David also as a “meta-researcher”.
