Full CV 
Katherine Sweatt is a postdoctoral fellow with the UAB Department of Psychiatry in the Division of Behavioral Neurobiology.
Katherine received her Bachelor of Science in Pre-medical Sports Medicine from Samford University in 2008. She came to UAB in January of 2010 to pursue a Master’s in Exercise Physiology under the mentorship of Dr. Gary Hunter. Her master's thesis evaluated the accuracy of perceived exertion over weight loss and weight regain in African American and European American.
In 2012, Katherine began as a predoctoral trainee in the Department of Nutrition Sciences and the UAB Nutrition Obesity Research Center to pursue a Doctorate. Her area of research included psychosocial and lifestyle determinants of diabetes risk factors in women. More specifically, her work assessed the relationship between psychosocial distress, insulin sensitivity, and chronic inflammation. This involved conducting a diet and exercise intervention in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), in which findings suggested that a lifestyle approach may produce both metabolic and psychosocial health benefits in the management of PCOS.
Katherine began postdoctoral training in April of 2017 under the mentorship of Dr. Li Li in the Department of Psychiatry. She intends to continue to develop clinical research skills and focus on the impact of depression and early life stress on the development of obesity and metabolic disease.
