Hearst Postdoctoral Fellow
Katie Lancaster, PhD, is a Hearst Postdoctoral Fellow in the Center for Traumatic Brain Injury Research and the Social Cognition and Neuroscience Laboratory at Kessler Foundation. She received her PhD in Social Psychology from the University of Virginia in 2018. Dr. Lancaster studies social neuroscience with an emphasis on understanding how people regulate their own emotions and perceive the emotions of others; she is exploring the neural mechanisms of deficits in these processes in the traumatic brain injury and multiple sclerosis populations. She is also interested in the provision and receipt of social support and how it interacts with well-being, broadly defined.
