Dr. Haley plans to admit a new graduate student for Fall of 2016.


I received my Ph.D. degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of Virginia in 2005 after completing a pre-doctoral internship in Neuropsychology and Rehabilitation Medicine at Eastern Virginia Medical School.  Before joining the Clinical Psychology faculty at UT Austin, I spent two years as a Dementia Research Fellow at Brown University, and a visiting research fellow at the Center for Neurological Imaging at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. 

My research examines the biological underpinnings of cognitive impairment associated with aging and dementia. As a clinical neuropsychologist, I am interested in studying the neural substrates of memory, language and executive function in clinical populations, in vivo, by utilizingfunctional neuroimaging (fMRI) and neurospectroscopy (1H MRS). I also conduct work to determine how disturbances in glucose metabolism, hormonal regulation, and cardiovascular functioning contribute to changes in cognition, brain morphology, and energy metabolism. My goal is to bridge knowledge from basic and clinical neuroscience with the aim of improving how we understand, predict, and treat age- and disease-related cognitive impairment.
