Sarah D. Patrick
I am currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology with a double concentration in Clinical Neuropsychology and Statistics and Measurement.
I am a member of Dr. Lisa Rapport's Neuropsychology and Assessment Lab (NeurAL). My primary research interests include neuropsychological assessment, performance validity assessment, and psychometrics/measurement-based research. My current research examines the utility of biometric indices, such as pupillometry, in the context of performance validity assessment.
I will be completing my APA pre-doctoral internship in clinical neuropsychology at the VA Ann Arbor Healthcare System.
