    Collapse Overview
    Stephanie Agtarap is a behavioral scientist interested in the long-term mental health outcomes of individuals following traumatic injury. Trained as an experimental psychologist, Dr. Agtarap completed her research training at the University of North Texas with external research experience at the Level I Trauma Center of Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas. She has published several chapters and articles concerning resilience, posttraumatic stress, and well-being following traumatic injury. Her dissertation identified trajectories of depression and caregiver burden among family caregivers of trauma/critical care patients, and the role of trait-resilience in predicting these trajectories for possible intervention. Dr. Agtarap continues pursuing applied opportunities in the hopes of demonstrating the utility of experimental psychology in applied research, particularly where advanced research and statistical methods can be utilized to inform patient outcomes.

    Currently, she is in her first-year as a postdoctoral research fellow at UC San Diego under the mentorship of Murray Stein, where she conducts advanced quantitative strategies to investigate posttraumatic stress and post-concussive syndrome among civilians and military servicemembers following mild traumatic brain injury.
