Dr. Williamson earned her MS in Psychology from Augusta State University and her PhD in Experimental Psychology with a subspecialty in Neuropsychology from the University of Memphis. She joined the KSU faculty in the Fall of 2006. She has two broad areas of research interests: stress and the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL). Within the area of stress, she is interested in examining how perceived and physiological indicators of stress relate to cognitive function (e.g., decision making, problem solving, and prospective memory) and what factors may mediate this relationship. Within SoTL, she is interested in determining factors that influence student learning and metacognition. She has published in Psychology Learning and Teaching, Child Neuropsychology, Cerebral Cortex, Neurobiology of Aging, Psychology and Aging, American Journal of Neuroradiology, and Microscopy Research and Technique. Dr. Williamson has presented her research at several national and international conferences and is a member of the Association for Psychological Science and the Society for the Teaching of Psychology
