Postdoctoral Associates/Fellows

Shellie-Anne Levy, Ph.D.

Dr. Levy is a neuropsychology postdoctoral associate in the Department of Clinical and Health Psychology working under the supervision of Dr. Catherine Price.  Research interests include examining the cognitive sequelae of neurodegenerative disorders among ethnically diverse patient samples.  Currently, she assesses cognitive changes in Parkinson’s disease and their relationship to gray matter structures and white matter integrity using structural brain MRI.  Dr. Levy has been awarded a National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) Diversity Supplement to specifically examine the brain white matter circuits that contribute to executive decline in individuals with Parkinson’s disease.  Clinically, she provides neuropsychological assessment of older adults with movement disorders and memory disorders.  Dr. Levy completed her pre-doctoral internship in Clinical Neuropsychology at the University of Florida and earned her doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Howard University.  Her dissertation examined cardiovascular risk and cognition in older African Americans.

Erika Mellott, Ph.D.

Dr. Mellott is a pediatric neuropsychology postdoctoral associate in the Department of Clinical and Health Psychology working under the supervision of Dr. Shelley Heaton. As a part of her clinical appointment, Dr. Mellott provides both inpatient and outpatient neuropsychological assessments to children with a variety of neurobiological and neurodevelopmental disorders, and serves as a consultation liaison for several pediatric departments within UF Health & Shands Hospital. With regard to research, her interests include neurocognitive outcomes associated with pediatric traumatic brain injury and childhood cancers. Dr. Mellott completed her pre-doctoral internship at the University of Florida, and earned her doctorate in clinical psychology from Wright State University.

Seema Pandya, Ph.D.

Dr. Pandya is a Neuropsychology Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Clinical and Health Psychology, working under the supervision of Drs. Dawn Bowers, Russell Bauer, and Catherine Price.  She conducts neuropsychological assessments amongst a variety of adult patient populations, including memory disorders, movement disorders, epilepsy, traumatic brain injury, brain tumors, vascular/metabolic disease, pre- and post-operative conditions, and other cognitive concerns.  Dr. Pandya completed her pre-doctoral internship in Clinical Neuropsychology and earned her doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology, both from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, TX.  Her dissertation examined predictors of reversion from mild cognitive impairment to normal cognition.  Primary research interests involve studying the neuropsychological correlates of aging and dementia, though she also has interests in Parkinson’s disease, cerebrovascular disease, epilepsy, and traumatic brain injury.
