The Rudd Adoption Research Program is excited to welcome Dr. Jessica Matthews as our Postdoctoral Research Scholar! Jessica recently completed her Ph.D. in the Eliot-Pearson Department of Child Study and Human Development at Tufts where she worked with Dr. Ellen Pinderhughes. Her dissertation focused on maltreatment in adoptive homes and the legal relinquishment/removal and subsequent readoption of previously adopted children. Her general research interests concern both domestically and internationally adopted children, child foster care, ethnic-racial socialization, identity development and adoptee advocacy. We look forward to having Jessica on our team!
