Dr. Mary Elizabeth Wood is an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry & Behavioral Sciences in the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. She completed her doctorate degree in clinical psychology with a concentration in psychology and the law from the University of Alabama, and subsequently completed a postdoctoral fellowship in forensic psychology at Patton State Hospital. The majority of her training and interests (both clinical and research) fall at the interface of psychology and the law, with a particular emphasis on the appropriate identification, assessment, and treatment of individuals with intellectual disability in forensic settings. Her clinical interests primarily relate to the forensic evaluation of juvenile and adult criminal defendants (e.g., adjudicative competence, mental state at the time of the offense, violence risk assessment), in addition to a broader interest in capital work (e.g., Atkins, capital mitigation).
