Personal bio
Jelena Obradovic is an assistant professor at Stanford University in the Developmental and Psychological Sciences program in the School of Education. She received her Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology in 2007 from the Institute of Child Development at the University of Minnesota. After graduate school, she was as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Human Early Learning Partnership, University of British Columbia. Dr. Obradovic's research focuses on how contextual risk and adversity influence children's adaptation across multiple domains of functioning over time. She studies how individual differences in children's physiological reactivity and self-regulatory abilities enable some disadvantaged children to demonstrate remarkable resilience, while placing others at risk for maladaptive outcomes. Dr. Obradovic is also interested in how children's biological and behavioral susceptibilities to environmental threats and challenges are shaped by early life experiences.
