Callie Tyner

Callie Tyner '07


Callie Tyner graduated from Agnes Scott in 2007 as a Psychology major. She grew up in Gainesville, Florida and currently lives in Newark, Delaware. After graduating from Agnes Scott she worked at the Atlanta VA and Emory before going to study neuropsychology at the University of Florida, where she earned a PhD in Clinical and Health Psychology. Since 2016 she has been a Research Assistant Professor at the University of Delaware, where she works with a team to develop new patient-reported outcomes measures (“PROMs”) for rehabilitation populations, including traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, and limb trauma. She is also working to develop new tests of cognitive functioning for use in large-scale longitudinal research. Her academic experiences at Agnes Scott fostered her love for neuroscience beginning with Dr. Blatchley’s course in sensation and perception. Her professors also instilled in her the importance of rigorous study design and standardized procedures for research, skills that she uses every day in her work. Callie looks back on her time in Atlanta fondly, both for the work experiences that helped shape her career but also for the lifelong friendships that began during that time. Callie is pictured here on her honeymoon in October 2018 visiting Gyeongbokgung Palace (Palace of Shining Happiness) in Seoul, South Korea.
