Dr. Suzannah Chatlos
Assistant Professor of Psychology, School Psychology
My research is in the area of bullying in childhood and adolescence (including relational aggression and bullying of LGBTQ+ youth). More recently, my research interests have also included applied research in the schools (e.g., examining the local prevalence of bullying and the need for anti-bullying programs in our area; implementing scientifically sound anti-bullying programs) and, more broadly, reducing barriers to adopting and implementing with fidelity evidence-based interventions in the school setting.

(with Dr. Samudra and undergraduate research assistants)
We are collecting online data to better understand how elementary school teachers and students, as well as the parents of elementary-aged children are adapting to the long-term changes associated with the pandemic. We are particularly interested in academic, social, and emotional health.
College Bullying of Students With & Without Disabilities
(with undergraduate research assistants)
We are using online surveys to better understand what factors (such as disability status) impact the amount of bullying victimization or perpetration college students experience, engage in, or witness.
