He is also an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Clinical Community Psychology at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, SC. Dr. Landoll earned his B.S. in Psychology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and subsequently received his M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Miami in Coral Gables, FL. Dr. Landoll completed his Internship in Clinical Psychology at the Malcolm Grow Medical Clinic at Joint Base Andrews, MD. He is dual Board Certified in Clinical Psychology and Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology. He is also a Department of Defense Internal Behavioral Health Consultant Expert Trainer and earned his Master's in Health Professions Education from the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in 2019.
Prior to being stationed at USU, Dr. Landoll held several positions within the 20th Medical Group at Shaw Air Force Base in Sumter, SC. He served as the Chief, Mental Health Clinic, and the Behavioral Health Optimization Program Manager. He has also deployed as a Survival, Evasion, Resistance, Escape (SERE) Psychologist at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan, in support of Operations Enduring Freedom and Freedom's Sentinel.
Dr. Landoll's research interest span several areas in child, pediatric, and health psychology. He has over 70 publications and presentations on these topics, as well as areas including school mental health and supervision of clinical assessment. His research broadly focuses on two main topic areas: primary care behavioral health, and adolescent peer relationships (i.e., romantic relationships, friendships, and peer victimization, including cyber victimization) and internalizing disorders (i.e., social anxiety, depression). He is the Principal Investigator for the Military Active-Duty Reproductive + Sexual Health (MARSH) Research Program. He is a member of the American Board of Clinical Psychology, the American Psychological Association, the Collaborative on Healthy Parenting in Primary Care, the Society for Military Psychology and the Society of Pediatric Psychology. He has held various leadership positions in the American Psychological Association's Division 19 (Society for Military Psychology), including Chair, Early Career Psychology Committee, Chair, APA Convention Program and is the Treasurer-Elect for the Society.
In addition, Drs. McClenen and Landoll are co-directors of the pSyTORM (pSychological Training, Operations, and Research in the Military; pronounced ‘storm’) Lab. The pSyTORM lab is focused on developing military psychologists as leaders in both clinical application and responsible conduct of research focused on military psychology. Students in the pSyTORM lab are expected to develop research skills that complement the work of active duty clinical psychologists as scientist-practitioners. This includes an emphasis on program evaluation and quality improvement as well as conducting collaborative research across the Military Health System with anticipated relevance at all levels from tactical to strategic. The lab operates under a co-mentorship model which involves joint mentorship meetings and weekly planning meetings with lab members. Other military-affiliated faculty participate in the lab as appropriate.
