About

Brittany N. Rudd is a 6th year graduate student in the Clinical Science program. She received a bachelor’s degree in psychology at California State University, Fresno, graduating Summa Cum Laude, where she began studying couples and at-risk populations. At Indiana University, Brittany broadly studies the impact of parental separation on children with two primary lines of research. The first line of research evaluates programs for families utilizing the family law system (e.g., family mediation, online parent education program). The second line of research seeks to identify the mechanism driving the negative impact of parental separation on child development, particularly children’s sleep quality. Brittany enjoys going on walks with her dog, Mila, unique fitness classes, and farmers markets.
