Roisman to join ICD faculty
Glenn Roisman (Ph.D., ICD, 2002) will join the faculty at the Institute of Child Development as of Fall 2012. Glenn's research spans multiple levels of development including: the social, cognitive, and biological legacy of early experience; normative and atypical development in adolescent and adult relationships, resilience across the life course; culture, relationships, and development; and vocational development in adolescence and the transition to adulthood. As Glenn puts it, the goal of his work is to "provide insight into the childhood experiences and resources that scaffold healthy adjustment in the years of maturity." Glenn has received numerous grants, including awards from the National Institute of Child Health & Human Development and the National Science Foundation. In 2007 he received the SRCD early career contributions award, followed by the APA's Boyd R. McCandless Young Scientist Award in 2010. Glenn's wife, Chryle Elieff, will also join ICD as a master instructor. Both Glenn and Chryle earned their Ph.D.s at the Institute of Child Development. Chryle has taught a full range of child psychology courses at the University of Illinois and won a number of teaching awards there. She will contribute her extensive teaching expertise to our programs. We are thrilled to welcome them back to the Institute.
