Research Summary

Casey LaDuke is a licensed psychologist and behavioral scientist specializing in clinical neuropsychology and forensic mental health. His research focuses on brain health, related outcomes, and resulting disparities centering people impacted by the criminal legal system. He currently leads and collaborates on a number of research projects that aim to better understand the relationships between exposure to the criminal legal system and brain health, injury, and illness, and to increase the inclusion and retention of people impacted by the criminal legal system in brain health research. He and his collaborators use clinical research, mixed methodologies, community-based participatory research (CBPR) methods, and the secondary analysis of existing databases to accomplish these aims. He has mentored students at the doctoral, MA, and undergraduate levels while they participated in this research and accomplished their own independent research projects.
