Dr. Hannah SchacteR
Dr. Schacter will start as an Assistant Professor of Psychology in the Developmental Science Area at Wayne State University in Fall 2019. She is currently a National Science Foundation postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Southern California. Dr. Schacter received her PhD in Psychology from UCLA and her BA from Hamilton College.
Broadly speaking, her research examines how adolescents’ interpersonal relationships contribute to their mental and physical health outcomes. She seeks to identify contextual factors that protect against versus exacerbate the maladjustment of socially vulnerable (e.g., bullied) youth. Dr. Schacter investigates these questions using multiple methods and time-scales (e.g., daily diaries; yearly school-based surveys) to understand both the short- and long-term impact of interpersonal difficulties.
