Amanda K. Small, Ph.D.
Cancer Research Training Award Fellow
Amanda (Mandy) Small, Ph.D., was a Cancer Research Training Award (CRTA) postdoctoral fellow in the Health Behaviors Research Branch of the Behavioral Research Program from August 2022 to August 2023.
Dr. Small's research focuses on the socio-environmental determinants of health through a stress framework. She uses technology and within-person approaches to allow for and investigate the dynamic processes of everyday life as they occur and change. As a CRTA fellow she applied these models to cancer-relevant health behaviors at multiple stages.
Dr. Small earned a Ph.D. in Psychological Sciences with a health focus from the University of California, Merced. For her dissertation, she conducted several ecological momentary assessment studies connecting population/community level indicators of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020 to day-to-day individual health and well-being outcomes in young adults.
Current and/or past BRP mentors include Susan Czajkowski.
