Kathryn Humphreys, Ph.D., Ed.M.

Associate Professor, Psychology and Human Development

Dr. Humphreys directs the Stress and Early Adversity (SEA) Lab, which pursues questions related to positive and negative experiences during pregnancy, infancy, and early childhood. Our research includes both basic and applied approaches for understanding developmental processes in the context of risk and preventing and intervening following exposure to adversity. In particular, we are interested in promoting positive caregiving experiences and buffering children from the effects of adversity.
