Adolescent Motherhood and the Child Welfare System: Incidence and Prevalence of Early Childbearing among Maltreated Girls Exposed to Foster Care

Research Interests

At the broadest level, my research focuses on the well-being of older children and youth involved in the child welfare system. Specifically, I am interested in risk factors and effects of adolescent parenting, delinquency and criminal justice involvement, health and behavioral health outcomes, and other long-term impacts that can be measured, at least initially, through population-level data linkages. I also focus on issues of disproportionality and disparity (race, class, and gender), prevention, youth development, social welfare ethics, and theories of deviance.
