The Department Welcomes New Faculty

The Department has three new faculty members joining our ranks this year. They each hold the unique distinction of joining us from other departments or positions at the UW. Shannon Dorsey joins us from the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences as an Associate Professor in our Child Clinical area. Shannon’s research focuses on treatment for youth impacted by trauma both domestically and internationally including in Africa and Southeast Asia. Mary Larimer joins us from Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences as a Professor in our Adult Clinical area. Mary’s research focuses on prevention and treatment of alcohol problems in adolescents and college students. Finally, Andrea Stocco joins us from UW’s Institute for Learning and Brain Sciences as a Research Assistant Professor in our Cognition and Perception area. Andrea’s research focuses on the representation of rules in the brain and the neural mechanisms that underlie flexible decision making. All three represent outstanding new additions to our Department and we are privileged to have them join us.
