Dr. Erinn Duprey is a postdoctoral fellow affiliated with the Mt. Hope Family Center and the Center for the Study and Prevention of Suicide in the Department of Psychiatry at University of Rochester Medical Center. She received her PhD in Human Development and Family Science from the University of Georgia, where she studied the multilevel mechanisms linking childhood adversity and youth psychopathology.
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 factors (e.g., physiological stress reactivity) and family factors (e.g., parenting processes) that influence the risk for internalizing symptomology and suicide-related behaviors during adolescence. Dr. Duprey is also interested in the use of 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. Therefore, her goal is to produce research on the consequences of child maltreatment that can be effectively translated into interventions and prevention programs. Additionally, she is interested in the effective dissemination and communication of research on child maltreatment.
