Assistant Professor of Psychiatry & Behavioral Neuroscience

Faculty, Clinical Psychology Program

Alice completed her B.A. in History and Psychology at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire. She received a PhD in Clinical Psychology from the University of Oregon and completed her clinical internship at OHSU’s Child Development and Rehabilitation Center. Her research focuses on understanding the influence of stress exposure, beginning in the prenatal period, on the developing nervous system. She is particularly interested in identifying common pathways through which multiple forms of stress and other adverse exposures can contribute to risk for psychiatric disorders. She employs structural and functional MRI to study the developing brain beginning in the neonatal period. She is interested in translational research, incoporating MRI and preventive intervention, as an importance means of advancing understanding of brain development and increasing the clinical relevance of basic science. Alice is a licensed clinical psychologist. She enjoys working with children and families in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry at OHSU with a focus on treatment for trauma related symptoms and anxiety.
