Dr. Duprey’s research is guided by the developmental psychopathology perspective, and focuses primarily on the role of childhood adversity in shaping adolescent and young adult socioemotional outcomes. Erinn holds a Masters degree in Counseling Psychology from Teachers College, Columbia University, and a PhD in Human Development and Family Science from the University of Georgia. She recently completed a T32 postdoctoral fellowship in suicide prevention at the University of Rochester Medical Center.

Research Interests:

Dr. Duprey’s primary research interest is the developmental sequelae of child maltreatment exposure in adolescent populations. She is particularly interested in investigating the processes that link early life stress with adolescent internalizing symptomology and suicide-related behaviors, as well as uncovering protective factors for youth who have been exposed to early life adversity. Dr. Duprey’s research is guided by the developmental psychopathology framework and developmental systems perspectives. As such, she is particularly interested in investigating multilevel processes, including biological and contextual (e.g., family and community) factors that influence the risk for internalizing symptomology and suicide-related behaviors during adolescence. Additionally, Erinn is interested in studying the process of resilience and uncovering protective factors that contribute to positive youth development. Dr. Duprey primarily uses advanced quantitative methodology and longitudinal methods, including person-centered approaches, to study the development of youth psychopathology and risk-behaviors.

Dr. Duprey values the translation of science into practice and prevention. Therefore, her goal is to produce research on the consequences of childhood adversity that can be effectively translated into interventions and prevention programs. Additionally, she is interested in the effective dissemination and communication of research on child development, particularly to community stakeholders.
