Research Interests:

Katherine is interested in adopting biopsychosocial perspectives in psychopathology research by capturing system-wide interactions that contribute to well being and mental health pathology. Her doctoral research focuses broadly on the interaction of stress, immune activity, and gut-brain communication in relation to symptoms of depression and cognitive deficits. More specifically, she is interested in the role that cognition and stress appraisal play in modulating neuroendoimmune activity in transdiagnostic populations experiencing depression.
