Kristine Marceau

Kristine Marceau is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Human Development and Family Studies at Purdue. In 2016, during the third and final year of her postdoctoral fellowship at Brown University with Dr. Valerie Knopik, she was promoted to an Assistant Research Professor. To date, Kristine has had 34 publications, 20 as first author and 7 as second author. Her K-award application was funded, and in addition to that grant, she is a consultant on another. She also received a 2016 Rising Star award from the Association for Psychological Science. Kristine graduated from Penn State’s Developmental Psychology PhD program in 2013 under the mentorship of Dr. Jenae Neiderhiser.

As a graduate student, Kristine’s research focused on the mechanisms that underlie the development of behavior problems, particularly gene-environment interplay and the reciprocal interactions between neuroendocrine functioning and family relationships. The title of her dissertation was, "Genetic, Hormone, and Family Environmental Influences on the Development of Adolescent Internalizing and Externalizing Problems."

As a Strumpf Scholar, Kristine was able to use the scholarship funds to support the development of a NRSA grant proposal to the National Institutes of Health for her dissertation funding. The scholarship was also beneficial in terms of supporting professional networking at several national conferences.
