Kate Webb received her doctorate from the neuroscience program at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

She is a postdoctoral fellow in the Neurobiology of Fear Lab at McLean Hospital/Harvard Medical School, under the mentorship of Drs. Kerry Ressler and Nathaniel Harnett.

As a graduate member of Dr. Christine Larson’s research team and the Milwaukee Trauma Outcomes Project, she leveraged neuroimaging techniques to evaluate factors which may bestow risk or resilience of developing post-traumatic stress disorder after a traumatic injury.

Her current line of work investigates how structural determinants of health may influence the neurobiological mechanisms underlying PTSD symptoms.
