Curriculum Vitae

Q: What are your research interests?

A: My primary research interests relate to the foster care and child welfare system. I am particularly interested in risk and protective factors of key players in the foster care system, such as foster parents, youth involved in foster care, case workers, and other child welfare professionals. I am also interested in researching ways to improve the function of the child welfare system and improving collaboration with other systems such as the education system, child advocates, juvenile justice system, or court system.
