Laura K. Noll, Ph.D.

Dr. Laura K. Noll, a Junior Fellow at the Center, is an Assistant Professor in the areas of Clinical Psychology and Human Neuroscience in the Department of Psychological Sciences at Northern Arizona University (NAU), where she is also an affiliated faculty member of the Southwest Health Equity Collaborative and Interdisciplinary Health Sciences Ph.D. Program. As a prevention scientist working at the intersection of translational neuroscience and developmental psychology, Dr. Noll’s program of research focuses on utilizing multi-modal assessment strategies to delineate the pathways by which parents’ own history of childhood adversity impacts parental function; identifying new intervention targets that may be most sensitive to change; and translating such findings from basic science into effective intervention strategies and novel research tools to forward our ability to support at-risk families. In her role as Junior Fellow, Dr. Noll provides support for program evaluation with the Center’s Frontiers of Innovation R&D platform.
