Post-Doctoral Associates/Fellows

Shellie-Anne Levy, Ph.D.

Dr. Levy is a neuropsychology postdoctoral associate in the Department of Clinical and Health Psychology working under the supervision of Dr. Catherine Price.  Research interests include examining the cognitive sequelae of neurodegenerative disorders among ethnically diverse patient samples.  Currently, she assesses cognitive changes in Parkinson’s disease and their relationship to gray matter structures and white matter integrity using structural brain MRI.  Dr. Levy has been awarded a National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) Diversity Supplement to specifically examine the brain white matter circuits that contribute to executive decline in individuals with Parkinson’s disease.  Clinically, she provides neuropsychological assessment of older adults with movement disorders and memory disorders.  Dr. Levy completed her pre-doctoral internship in Clinical Neuropsychology at the University of Florida and earned her doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Howard University.  Her dissertation examined cardiovascular risk and cognition in older African Americans.

Cara Lusby, Ph.D.

Dr. Lusby is a Postdoctoral Associate in the Department of Clinical and Health Psychology under the supervision of Drs. David Fedele, David Janicke, and Brenda Wiens. She currently supervises graduate trainees in psychological evaluation and therapy. Dr. Lusby also provides direct patient care, with a particular clinical interest in mood disorders in adolescents and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. Dr. Lusby completed her predoctoral internship in Clinical Child/Pediatric Psychology at the University of Florida. She received her doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Emory University in 2015. Primary research interests involve developmental psychopathology with a specific focus on emotion regulation systems (both biological and behavioral) in at-risk children and adolescents.

Seema Pandya, Ph.D.

Dr. Pandya is a Neuropsychology Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Clinical and Health Psychology, working under the supervision of Drs. Dawn Bowers, Russell Bauer, and Catherine Price.  She conducts neuropsychological assessments amongst a variety of adult patient populations, including memory disorders, movement disorders, epilepsy, traumatic brain injury, brain tumors, vascular/metabolic disease, pre- and post-operative conditions, and other cognitive concerns.  Dr. Pandya completed her pre-doctoral internship in Clinical Neuropsychology and earned her doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology, both from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, TX.  Her dissertation examined predictors of reversion from mild cognitive impairment to normal cognition.  Primary research interests involve studying the neuropsychological correlates of aging and dementia, though she also has interests in Parkinson’s disease, cerebrovascular disease, epilepsy, and traumatic brain injury.
