Dr. Matt Stevenson is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Developmental Psychology working with Professor Brenda Volling at the Center for Human Growth and Development at the University of Michigan. He received his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Arizona State University in 2014. He is interested in the role of fathers in child development and developmental psychopathology. More specifically his research focuses on three main areas: 1) advancing foundational attachment theory as it relates to father-child relationships, 2) the unique impact of fathers on the development of children’s self-regulation and social skills and 3) the vulnerability of fathering and father-child relationships to marital conflict. Matt works with Dr. Volling on projects investigating fathering, attachment, marital conflict, and siblings.
