About J. J. Cutuli

J. J. Cutuli is an Assistant Professor at Rutgers University-Camden. His research involves the developmental processes of resilience for children, youth, and families who experience high levels of adversity, such as homelessness, abuse, and poverty. Dr. Cutuli focuses on protective factors that are common in the lives of individuals who do well, and the processes through which those factors result in positive adaptation. As a developmental scientist, he has published over thirty journal articles and chapters investigating how factors at different levels of the person like genes, physiology, and psychology, and factors in peoples’ contexts like families, schools, and neighborhoods, come together in complex ways over time to contribute to success or challenges in important areas like education, health, relationships, mental health, and good conduct. He received his doctorate from the University of Minnesota with dual training in child development and clinical psychology.
