Meet Dr. Yvonne Castillo Dr. Yvonne Castillo’s interests include working with victims of human trafficking, gerontology, and the challenges caregivers of elderly family members face. As Director of the Counseling and Training Clinic, Castillo creates a “training ground” for graduate students to develop their professional counselor identities. During practicums and internship coursework, student counselors meet with clients and gain firsthand experience in dealing with issues such as anger and stress management, and anxiety and depression. She has teamed up with colleagues to develop a training program for Dialectica; Behavior Therapy to help graduate students assist individuals with borderline personality disorders. “We provide our students with opportunities to work with clients who face life-challenging situations,” said Castillo. “Our students also receive the tools they need to develop themselves professionally by presenting their research at state and national conferences and participating in state and national counselor organizations.” In addition, Castillo and Dr. Mary Alice Fernandez developed a Graduate Bilingual Counselor Certificate Program to address the critical shortage of trained professional counselors who serve the mental health service needs of a rapidly growing Hispanic population.

COLLEGE OF GRADUATE STUDIES
Dr. Paul Montagna is highly regarded in the areas of ecosystem studies, freshwater inflows, water quality and environmental statistics. He is known for his research on the impacts of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and for his expertise on “dead zones” in the Gulf of Mexico, which he has studied for more than 20 years. As Endowed Chair for Ecosystems and Modeling at the Harte Research Institute, Montagna mentors students in the University’s Coastal and Marine System Science PhD, Marine Biology MS and PhD, and Environmental Science MS programs. “What people may not realize is that the work we’re doing at the HRI matters to every living human and organism along the Gulf of Mexico,” said Montagna. “Our CMSS PhD program is like no other because we are training future generations to think in interdisciplinary ways to maintain and ensure the future health of the Gulf for years to come.” Montagna teaches graduate and doctoral classes on topics that include environmental statistics and mathematical ecology. Students learn to code programs that manipulate databases, calculate biodiversity and analyze large, complex environmental data sets.
