Elizabeth Miller

Elizabeth Miller completed her fifth year of the Child Clinical PhD program and her dissertation, entitled “Social information processing deficits and economic stress in disadvantaged rural fathers: Informing child maltreatment prevention with an understudied parent population." She will begin her clinical internship at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in 2017.

In graduate school, Elizabeth was awarded a Melissa Institute for Violence Prevention and Treatment Dissertation Award. She studied the relationship between social cognition and parenting risk in disadvantaged mothers with her mentor, Dr. Sandra Azar. Elizabeth received a Doris Duke Fellowship for the Promotion of Child Well-Being in 2015 and obtained multiple grants to fund data collection for her dissertation. To date, Elizabeth has co-authored ten publications, one as first author, and presented at conferences on topics including child maltreatment, parenting risk, child injury risk, and adolescent risky behaviors.

Elizabeth received her B.A. cum laude in Psychology from Harvard University in 2009, and then became part of a research team at the University of California – San Diego studying the implementation of evidence-based practices in the child welfare system.

Elizabeth feels the Strumpf Scholar Award facilitated increased productivity by providing time and flexibility to obtain external funding and collect data, as well as resources for conference travel. She believes these opportunities enhanced her graduate school experience and will promote a successful research career in the future.
