Hilary Galloway-Long

Hilary Galloway-Long is in her 4th year of the Child Clinical Psychology Ph.D. program. Her primary research interest focuses on examining challenges in translating modern research methods into clinically applicable assessment tools for use with children’s attention issues. Her mentor is Dr. Cynthia Huang-Pollock.

Hilary attended Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Oregon, where she received her Bachelor of Science in Psychology. Following her undergraduate work, she became a Research Assistant and Data Manager at the Oregon Health & Science University under Dr. Joel Nigg, Professor of Psychiatry, Pediatrics, and Behavioral Neuroscience. Hilary gained valuable research experience both as an undergraduate and during her three years working with Dr. Nigg. She worked on projects from the development stage, through funding and carrying out research, to analyzing data and presenting findings. She received hands-on experience administering neuropsychological, psychosocial, and physiological assessments to children and their parents, and gained experience on how to conduct longitudinal and interdisciplinary research. As a graduate student, she has furthered her clinical and research experience by collecting participant data and providing clinical feedback to families. She also spent time supervising the administration of the Preschool-Age Psychiatric Assessment (PAPA) and the Conners’ Adult ADHD Diagnostic Interview (CAADID). In 2016, she received her Master of Science in Clinical Psychology. Her thesis was titled, “Processing Speed and Working Memory in Children with ADHD: Improving Measurement Using Multiple Methods”. She is first author on one publication and has co-authored several. She has been a teaching assistant since 2013 and has received several travel awards.

The Strumpf Scholar Award will allow Hilary the opportunity to expand her research and assessment skills through a collaboration with Dr. Kristina Neely, Assistant Professor of Kinesiology, and her Brain and Behavior lab. Hilary plans to investigate movement neuroscience, i.e., how the brain controls movement. She also plans to spend time studying neuropsychological measures collected within the Brain and Behavior lab, as well as functional and structural MRI and DNA data. Hilary is grateful for the Strumpf Scholar Award and feels it will allow her to continue gaining valuable knowledge which will translate into a fulfilling career focused on serving the needs of both researchers and clinicians.
