Sarah Fischer

Sarah Fischer, BS

Sarah is a 1st year graduate student whose current research interests include the developmental and dimensional aspects of serious mental illness with a focus on neuroscience and neuroimaging, as well as exploring the most effective treatment modalities for serious mental illness (outside of psychopharmacology) and the best way to implement those treatments. She graduated from Indiana University-Bloomington in 2014 with a BS in psychology, with a concentration in neuroscience and a minor in German. While an undergraduate, and for one year after graduating, she worked as a Research Assistant at Indiana University in the Clinical and Cognitive Neuroscience Center (with Dr. William Hetrick) and in the Training Research and Implementation in Psychology lab (with Dr. Cara Lewis).

Sarah is currently a graduate research extern at Disability Rights Nebraska, a protection and advocacy agency for individuals with disabilities.
