Biography

Dr. Stoddard is an Assistant Professor in the School of Nursing with a joint appointment in the Department of Health Behavior and Health Education in the School of Public Health. Her research interests include understanding the interaction between individual factors and social and environmental factors (e.g., neighborhood characteristics), and how together they shape the psychosocial development and health trajectories of at-risk urban youth. In 2013, she was awarded an Early Career Development Award (K01) from the National Institute on Drug Abuse to study the role of neighborhood characteristics on the co-occurrence of alcohol and drug use and violence among youth. In addition, she studies the application of behavioral and ecological approaches to preventing risk behaviors in youth.
