Caroline Armstrong holds a B.A. in Psychology and English from Duke University, where she contributed to research on adolescent friendships and perfectionism. Prior to joining CORD, she spent two years at Georgetown University Medical Center coordinating a multi-site trial comparing the effectiveness of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction and escitalopram for the treatment of anxiety disorders. She also managed a study examining the physiological mechanisms of these treatments via the NPU threat test paradigm. Caroline plans to pursue a PhD in clinical psychology and a research-focused career. Her research interests include most topics related to anxiety and OCD/related disorders, especially: their etiology and developmental psychopathology more broadly; transdiagnostic risk factors, processes, and approaches to prevention; and dissemination and implementation of evidence-based treatments.
