Primary Investigator

Dr. Elizabeth Will, PhD, BCBA


Dr. Will is a Developmental Scientist and Assistant Professor at the University of South Carolina. Dr. Will received her PhD in Developmental Science from Colorado State University. She followed her doctoral training with an NIH-funded (NICHD) postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Psychology at the University of South Carolina. Her postdoctoral training consisted of characterizing early risk features related to comorbid conditions in neurodevelopmental genetic conditions, including Down syndrome and fragile X syndrome. Dr. Will also holds a M.Ed. in Psychology and Human Development from Vanderbilt University’s Peabody College. Her training from Vanderbilt University provides a lens through which she contextualizes developmental needs of specific populations such as Down syndrome or fragile X syndrome within a targeted intervention framework. Dr. Will is also a board-certified behavioral interventionist which further helps her identify syndrome-specific areas of need and translate them into optimized developmental outcomes for the populations she serves.
