Elaine Johnson,, Advisor: Patricia Brennan
Research Interests: Exploring the relationship between resilience, environmental stress factors and the development of mood disorders in individuals who have faced repetitive traumas or live in high-stress environments.

James Kennedy,, Advisor: Edward Craighead
Research Interests: The use of meditation-based interventions for the treatment and prevention of psychopathology.

Bryan, Advisor: Jack McDowell
Research Interests: Quantitative analysis of the behavior of human participants and artificial life forms using an evolutionary theory of behavior dynamics and the algebraic formulas of matching theory.

Victoria Lawlor,, Advisor: Michael Treadway
Research Interests: I am interested in computational modeling of value-based decision-making, the role of decision-making in mood disorders, and the biological basis of reward learning.

Gershom Lazarus,, Advisor: Eugene Emory
Research Interests: The link between maternal stress and fetal developmental outcomes. The use of an intervention targeting maternal physiological functioning to improve fetal neurodevelopment.

Kathleen Martin,, Advisor: Rohan Palmer
Research Interests: Gene-environment interaction in the development of internalizing and externalizing psychopathology.
