Assistant professor of psychology Katie Edwards has received the 2016 Louise Kidder Early Career Award from The Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues. The selection committee cited Edwards’s commitment to both science and advocacy, and her work with underrepresented and marginalized groups as particularly impressive. They noted Edwards’s extensive record of publications and presentations, as well as her leadership at the state and national level on issues of sexual violence.

Edwards’s interdisciplinary program of research focuses broadly on better understanding the causes and consequences of interpersonal violence, primarily intimate partner violence and sexual assault among adolescents and young adults. Edwards uses this research data to develop, implement and evaluate prevention, intervention and policy efforts.

The Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues is a group of over 3000 scientists from psychology and related fields who share a common interest in research on the psychological aspects of social and policy issues. The independent Society is also a division of the American Psychological Association.
