Dr. Jessica Solis is a postdoctoral research fellow in the Department of Psychiatry at The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio in the Neurobehavioral Research Laboratory and Clinic (NRLC). After earning her bachelor's degree from Cornell University, she spent the next two years working as a Clinical Research Coordinator at Massachusetts General Hospital. She then went on to complete her graduate training in Clinical Psychology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where she investigated the intergenerational transmission of stress and coping models that could help explain the intergenerational transmission of alcohol use within high-risk families. She will be extending this work to further explore how impulse control and family histories of substance use disorders interact with the initiation and continuation of substance use in youth. Moreover, Jessica will also be addressing her interest in adolescent substance use treatment through her involvement with the CAMBIO program.
In addition to her research and training at the NRLC, Jessica enjoys baking, reading, and cheering for all of her favorite sports, especially her hometown team, the San Antonio Spurs.
