Jamie Abaied

Assistant Professor of Psychology

Jamie Abaied, Assistant Professor of Psychology, was born and raised near Rochester, NY. She received her B.A. in Psychology from Hamilton College (2004) and her M.A. and Ph.D. (2007, 2010) in Developmental Psychology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

Her research investigates the complex processes through which parents contribute to children's stress reactivity, coping, and psychopathology. Drawing from the theoretical framework of developmental psychopathology, her research seeks to account for why children who are exposed to similar parenting experiences follow diverse developmental pathways. She is also interested in the factors that contribute to parenting styles and behaviors over time. She primarily explores these topics in the context of children's exposure to stressful life events, such as peer victimization.

In her spare time, she enjoys knitting, walking her dog, and reading. After 6 years in the Midwest, she can't wait to start hiking and canoeing in the beautiful Green Mountains.
