Annie Ginty, Ph.D.

Dr. Ginty is interested in examining how the brain links psychological experiences, such as stress, with cognitive, biological and behavioral changes that matter for health. Her research integrates psychophysiological, neuroendocrine, and epidemiological methods. Her previous and current work examines how individual differences in stressor-evoked cardiovascular and neural responses to stress relate to unhealthy behaviors and future disease.

Dr. Ginty joined the Baylor faculty in Fall 2016. She completed a T32 training fellowship in Cardiovascular Behavioral Medicine at the University of Pittsburgh (2014-2016) and an AXA Research Fund Postdoctoral Research Fellowship at University of Birmingham (2012-2014). Dr. Ginty received her Ph.D. in Behavioral Medicine from University of Birmingham (United Kingdom) in 2012 and a B.S. in Psychology and Neuroscience from Allegheny College in 2009. In her spare time Dr. Ginty can be found running, walking with her dog (Bailey), and drinking copious amounts of hot tea.
