Ten Stony Brook Students Awarded Prestigious NSF-GRFP Fellowships

Riley mcdanalRiley McDanal

Hometown: Lakeland, Florida
Major: Clinical Psychology
Research Advisors: Nicholas R. Eaton and Jessica L. Schleider

Despite its pervasiveness, mental distress is not as well understood or effectively treated as one would hope. Research on the structure of mental distress can pave the way for the creation of more accessible and potent interventions. McDanal aims to bridge the gap between fundamental conceptualizations of mental well-being and applied practices of treating emotional and behavioral difficulties. 

McDanal has also received Stony Brook University’s John Neale Endowed Graduate Student Excellence Fund.
