Bio: 

Dr. Schenkel is a Clinical Psychologist and has been with the Department of Psychology since 2007. Prior to coming to RIT, she held positions at Seton Hall University, the Institute for Juvenile Research in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and the Weill Medical College of Cornell University - New York-Presbyterian Hospital.

Dr. Schenkel’s research is in the area of developmental psychopathology and the role of social cognition in the clinical expression of serious mental illness, particularly bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. Her work has examined emotion processing abnormalities among individuals who suffer from mood disorders as well as those who have histories of childhood trauma. Dr. Schenkel is utilizing eye tracking methodology to better understand this issue (e.g., associations between atypical visual scanning and impairments in emotion recognition). Her work has also focused on relationships between early traumatic experiences and later clinical outcomes among hearing and deaf individuals. To this end, her research attempts to integrate clinical, developmental, and psychophysiological approaches in the study of risk factors for serious mental illness and social-cognitive dysfunction.
