    Biography

    ​Noel Shadowen is a post-doctoral researcher with the Center for Training, Evaluation, and Community Collaboration (C-TECC). Her work focuses on three primary areas of interest: 1) international and cross-cultural prevention and intervention programs that take into account the complexities of social-ecological context, 2) experiences of trauma in childhood and the nuanced and cumulative effects of early adverse experiences on developmental trajectories and personality development through adolescence and adulthood, and 3) the effects of discrimination experiences, social injustices, and context on youth and young adults who hold marginalized identities. Clinical and research experiences with youth in multiple contexts inform her research.  She is also interested in the impact of prevention and other support programing on the mental health and development of students on college campuses.
