Experimental and Clinical Psychopharmacology announces its 2020 editorial fellows
Dear colleagues, please join me in congratulating Daniel Bradford, PhD, and Casey Guillot, PhD, who are the 2020 Editorial Fellows for Experimental and Clinical Psychopharmacology. Bradford and Guillot were selected from a pool of outstanding candidates and will begin their terms on Jan. 1, 2020. The fellow program is intended to provide early career researchers with editorial experience through management of submissions to the journal and ongoing mentoring from the journal editor. After completion of their terms, editorial fellows join the editorial board. A brief biography for each of them can be found below:
After completing a BA in psychology from Auburn University and a post-bac fellowship at the NIMH, Daniel Bradford earned his PhD in clinical psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he studied the psychophysiology of stress and addiction. He recently completed a clinical internship and brief postdoc fellowship at McLean Hospital/Harvard Medical School, where he researched the neurobiology of PTSD. In January 2020, he starts as an assistant professor in clinical psychology at the University of Miami. His research uses translational methods to build on animal addiction models to contribute to a new theoretical framework in which drugs such as alcohol acutely reduce reactivity to uncertain stressors in humans. This model proposes that chronic, repeated use of some drugs causes etiologically-relevant, compensatory stress neuroadaptations resulting in persistently exaggerated responses to uncertain stressors in addiction. He is passionate about the betterment of psychological science. As such, he follows emerging best practices from efforts to increase reproducibility and openness in our field.
Casey Guillot earned a BS in psychology and MS in general/experimental psychology from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, where he conducted research on Ecstasy (MDMA) use. He also earned a PhD in experimental psychology from The University of Southern Mississippi, where he was involved in conducting research on the effects of alcohol on executive functioning and deliberate self-harm as well as on the genetics of impulsivity and alcohol use. He further was a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Preventive Medicine at the University of Southern California, where he primarily conducted research on anxiety sensitivity and cigarette smoking. Currently, Guillot is an assistant professor in the Behavioral Science Program of the department of psychology at the University of North Texas, where his research interests focus on investigating dispositional and emotional vulnerabilities to addictive behaviors and studying the acute effects of substance use and withdrawal on cognitive/affective variables.
