Postdoctoral Fellow at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
Yuko Okado, Ph.D., is a postdoctoral fellow in psychology working with Sean Phipps, Ph.D. She earned her Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the Pennsylvania State University, where she worked as a research assistant at its Prevention Research Center.

She hopes to translate her findings towards the development of brief, behavioral interventions for the prevention of mood pathology.
