Erinn Duprey, Ph.D.
Research Scientist, Mt. Hope Family Center and Children’s Institute
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. 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.

Justin Russotti, Ph.D., LCSW
Postdoctoral Associate, Mt. Hope Family Center
Dr. Russotti’s research is guided by a developmental psychopathology framework and focuses on understanding how psychopathology unfolds over time within an individual as a result of complex culminations of dynamic interactions between the individual and their environment. He is particularly interested in the etiological roots and mechanistic underpinnings of stress-related and internalizing disorders (e.g., depression and anxiety). More specifically, Dr. Russotti has examined how the developmental timing of adversity may influence internalizing disorders, with an emphasis on early-life adversity. Recently, Dr. Russotti has investigated the effect of parental factors and high-risk parenting conditions (parental psychopathology, parental maltreatment history, and parenting stress) on offspring psychopathology. Dr. Russotti is also involved in longitudinal research designed to investigate the long-term psychological and biological effects of chronic stress (e.g., compromised physical health, allostatic load, epigenetic modifications). Dr. Russotti is a licensed clinical social worker in New York State with expertise in providing psychotherapy interventions to children, adolescents, and adults.
