  • Natalie Castellanos-Ryan, PhD

    Assistant Professor, École de psychoéducation, Université de Montréal

Natalie Castellanos-Ryan is an assistant professor at the École de Psychoeducation, Université de Montréal. Previously, she was a research fellow at the Centre de recherche du CHU Sainte-Justine and Psychiatry Department, Université de Montréal (2010-2014). She specializes in prevention science. She completed her PhD at the Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London (2009), where much of her work centered on the implementation and evaluation of a prevention and early intervention approach targeting personality risk factors for substance use and other behavioral problems in adolescence. Currently, her research focuses on investigating the common variance and risk factors shared across mental health disorders, particularly externalizing disorders, as well as their prevention. More specific interests include how pubertal and cognitive development and deficits in self-regulation predict substance use problems and comorbid psychopathology in youth, and how personality and environmental factors are implicated in these associations.
