Kate Thurston-Griswold

Kate Thurston-Griswold

Research Associate

Kate Thurston-Griswold received her Bachelor of Arts in psychology from the College of Wooster. Her senior thesis explored the impact of family separation on the mental health and academic performance of children of immigrants. During her undergraduate years, she assisted with research on the other-race effect and worked with the Culture and Mental Health Lab at the University of Southern California to help design educational initiatives and family-based clinical interventions for members of Spanish-speaking Latino communities who struggle with psychosis-related disorders.

 Kate’s research and professional interests in psychology center around clinical interventions for adolescents and young adults with affective and anxiety disorders, as well as increasing cultural competence among practicing psychologists so as to help make mental health services more accessible and effective for traditionally under-served populations. She plans to pursue a doctoral degree from a clinical or counseling psychology program and ultimately become a licensed therapist.

Teague Henry

Teague Henry

Postdoctoral Fellow

Teague Henry is a quantitative psychologist and postdoctoral fellow at the University of Pittsburgh in the Department of Psychiatry. He joined the the Youth and Family Research Program in 2020, where he researches the neural correlates of ADHD-related outcomes in adults with ADHD. Teague’s quantitative work centers on the development of new statistical techniques and software packages to analyze network data in both psychology and neuroimaging, with particular focus on understanding how components of networks contribute to the overall topology. Teague’s applied interests focus on the neural correlates of neurodevelopmental disorders such as autism and ADHD, adult outcomes of those disorders, and optimizing psychological interventions. 

Teague enjoys cooking, weight lifting, boardgames, watching horror movies alone, watching historical romances with his partner, and watching action movies with his cats.
