EMILY M. DOUGLAS, PH.D.
In 2016-2017 I was a Congressional fellow, funded by the Society for Research on Child Development / American Association for the Advancement of Science & Technology, where I worked for the U.S. Senate on child maltreatment policy issues.
My research focuses on program and policy implications of issues that address child and family well-being, largely in the areas of family violence: fatal child maltreatment, under-represented victims of partner violence and helpseeking, children's exposure to partner violence corporal punishment, and the connection between research and policy.

My recent university leadership (at a prior university) includes serving as co-chair of Project Inclusion, which is a campus-wide initiative concerning diversity, equity, and inclusion; and co-chairing a campus-wide summit on social justice summit.
