Kate Humphreys, PhD, EdM
Dr. Humphreys is trained as a clinical psychologist with expertise in infant mental health. Her work centers on identifying pathways to the development of psychopathology. Given the importance of early experience and plasticity of the developing brain, Dr. Humphreys focuses on how the impact of stressful experiences in early life may be mitigated or reduced through prevention and intervention programs. Her research includes tools from neuroscience, including magnetic resonance imaging, in infants, children, and adults, as well as biological markers of aging and health.
