Grad Student


Kate Beauchamp is a fifth-year doctoral student in the Clinical Psychology program at the University of Oregon, under the mentorship of Dr. Philip Fisher and Dr. Elliot Berkman. Her current research interests include investigating both how experiences of early life stress affect neurobiological systems (e.g., the stress response system, neural systems underlying executive function) and also how this information can be leveraged to design neurobiologically-informed interventions to mitigate deleterious effects of early life stress across development. Specifically, she is using both behavioral and neuroimaging techniques to investigate the extent to which an inhibitory control training intervention that utilizes peer cues may be effective in improving inhibitory control and reducing risk-taking behaviors in adolescents.
