Kari Nations



Dr. Nations completed her B.A. at the University of California at San Diego and received her Ph.D. in clinical psychology/neuropsychology from UT. Her predoctoral research evaluated treatment interventions for patients with persistent physical, cognitive, and emotional symptoms related to mild traumatic brain injury. Since graduating in 2002, Dr. Nations has worked as an industry project director and senior scientist, designing and overseeing clinical research programs aimed at evaluating new drug treatments for mood disorders and other psychiatric indications. She recently returned to UT to work with Dr. Beevers in the MDL, where she is investigating cognitive bias and other markers for depression. She hopes to apply her research to improve current methodologies in treatment outcome research.
