Dana Mansfield, Research Specialist
B.A., 2016, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (Psychology)
During my time at UNC-Chapel Hill, I worked as a research assistant in the Anxiety and Stress Lab and the African American Youth Wellness Lab where I became interested in cultural differences in internalizing disorders in youth. I then worked at the University of Michigan as a research study coordinator for a brain-imaging study examining how cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) affects the brain in adolescents and adults with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD). My ultimate career goal is to become a child psychologist who seeks to understand how social stressors influence internalizing symptom presentation in children and adolescents from underserved communities.
