Laura Noll is a doctoral student in the Clinical Psychology program at the University of Oregon. In her research she seeks 1) to better understanding the mechanisms by which patterns of child maltreatment are transmitted across generations and 2) contribute to the development and implementation of interventions that interrupt these processes. Within this context, Laura is interested in exploring the complexity of bidirectional relationships that exist between diverse aspects of the human experience – from the epigenetic and neurobiological to the narrative and phenomenological. She holds a B.S. in Biochemistry from the University of Texas at Austin and a M.Sc. in Psychodynamic Developmental Neuroscience from University College London and Yale.
