Visiting Research Fellow
Zoe Taylor is an Associate Professor of Human Development and Family Studies at Purdue University and holds a PhD in Human Development and Family Studies from the University of California, Davis. Her mixed-method research investigates strength-based processes that buffer understudied and marginalized families from stress and lessen health and socioeconomic disparities (especially populations disproportionately impacted by poverty including immigrant and single-mother families). In particular, she is focused on identifying challenges and strengths of immigrant and migrant youth and children utilizing a resilience and family systems lens, with an emphasis on mental health and flourishing. Her research has been funded by the National Institute of Minority Health Disparities (NIMHD) and the Spencer Foundation. She serves on the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Psychosocial Development, Risk and Prevention (PDRP) Study Section and as an Editorial Board member for the Journal of Family Psychology.
