Valerie Rose Anderson

Title: Asst Professor
Tel: 513-556-2328

Professor Anderson received her Ph.D. in community psychology from Michigan State University in 2015 and completed a postdoctoral fellowship at Indiana University School of Medicine prior to joining the faculty in 2016. Her research focuses on the intersection of gender and the juvenile justice system and the system’s response to female offending. Her examination of female juvenile delinquency spans multiple ecological levels of analysis (e.g., individual, relational, environmental, socio-structural) and utilizes quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods approaches. Recently, Dr. Anderson has served as the principal investigator on an American Psychological Association (APA) funded public policy grant examining gender-responsive practices in the juvenile justice system. Her research is featured in a variety of criminal justice, public health, and psychology journals.
