Title: Research Scientist
Lab: Olin Neuropsychiatry Research Center

Dr. Gruner is a clinical psychologist who specializes in OCD and related disorders. She has specialized training in cognitive behavior therapy, neurocognitive assessment, and neuroimaging. Dr. Gruner completed her doctoral training at Fordham University. She completed postdoctoral training in Clinical Neuroscience at the Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, where she conducted fMRI and neurocognitive research in pediatric OCD. Her current work aims to integrate clinical, neurobiological, and cognitive perspectives on OCD. In particular, she is interested in how cognitive processes, such as cognitive flexibility and causal reasoning, may be altered early in disease course and how these relate to both aberrations in neurobiological functioning and clinical presentation. Her goal is to utilize this knowledge to create and refine new interventions for OCD.
