Jelena Obradovic
Assistant Professor in Developmental and Psychological Sciences Program, School of Education

Jelena Obradovic is an assistant professor at Stanford University in the Developmental and Psychological Sciences (DAPS) Program of the School of Education. Jelena received her Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology, with a minor in Statistics, in 2007 from the Institute of Child Development at the University of Minnesota. 

Her research examines how contextual risk and adversity influence children’s adaptation across multiple domains of functioning over time. I am interested in identifying the biological, behavioral, and environmental processes that enable some highly disadvantaged children to demonstrate remarkable resilience, while placing others at risk for maladaptive outcomes. Currently her work has been focusing more specifically on Adaptation, resilience, and developmental psychopathology of disadvantaged children populations; Stress reactivity and biological sensitivity to contextual influences; Executive function and self-regulatory abilities; Effects of risk, adversity, and social status on children’s development.
