About Jennifer E. Blakeslee

I first came to the School of Social Work in 2005 as an MSW student with an interest in working with youth in foster care, and fell in love with social work research as a way to understand and improve social policy and programming. I started the Ph.D. program in Social Work and Social Research in 2007 and gained valuable experience working on intervention research projects for youth in foster care, community-based projects to evaluate outcomes and improve services, and research-to-practice efforts to disseminate scholarship in ways that translate to real-world practice settings. After graduating in 2012, I stayed on to continue working on and initiating youth-related research projects, and in 2014 was appointed Research Assistant Professor through the Regional Research Institute to pursue my research agenda as an principal investigator.
