    Doris Duke Dissertation Fellowship for the Promotion of Child Well-Being: 

    Funding awarded from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, Chapin Hall at the University of Chicago to support dissertation research for two years. 

    Academic Mentor: Dr. Ann Mastergeorge, Associate Professor
    Policy Mentor: Naomi Karp, Director of Early Childhood Professional Development, The United Way of Tucson and Southern Arizona

    Dissertation title: Risk & Resilience Low-Income Families: Linking Contextual Risks, Parenting Style, Child Socioemotional Development and Maltreatment.

    The aim of my dissertation is to examine trajectories of parenting styles across early childhood among low-income families, and then evaluate mechanisms of risk and resilience, including enrollment in Early Head Start, that promote children’s socioemotional development and risk for child maltreatment. This dissertation research utilizes secondary data analyses of Early Head Start Research and Evaluation Project (EHSRE), a longitudinal impact study of EHS-eligible and EHS-enrolled families. Presently, I am preparing the data for the first analysis: predicting membership in particularly classes or styles of parenting across time based upon sociodemographic characteristics, previous class membership and enrollment in Early Head Start.
