Stephanie Agtarap, Ph.D.

Research Scientist
Craig Hospital, Englewood, Colorado


Dr. Agtarap's research has focused on the role of psychological distress and its impact on recovery following traumatic injury. She has broad training in longitudinal designs and applying structural equation modeling techniques to collaborative, multi-site efforts following individuals with traumatic brain injury. Her dissertation involved identifying trajectories of caregiver resilience, burden, and depression up to one year following a loved one's ICU stay. Dr. Agtarap's recent work includes understanding symptom sequelae between TBI and psychological distress conditions in both military and civilian populations. As a Research Scientist, she is establishing an independent line of research at Craig Hospital and within the TBI Model Systems (TBIMS) Network, which will focus on psychosocial factors that mitigate risk and promote resilient recovery following acute rehabilitation for spinal cord and brain injury. Through TBIMS, Dr. Agtarap pursues collaborative work in the areas of psychological distress, behavior management, social determinants of health, and TBI as a chronic condition to implement several secondary data analyses for publication in high-end rehabilitation journals.
