Rachel Jochem is finishing her Ph.D. in Human Development from The University of California, Davis. Her research interests are on children's social emotional development in the context of parenting. Rachel's preference is for observational data collection which bring children and their families into the lab or captures parent child interactions in their home. Her recent publications focus on how contextual and individual factors influence parents' perceptions of themselves as parents and how those perceptions relate to parenting behaviors. Rachel is new to the Rogue Valley, but says she is loving the landscape and is excited to join the SOUcampus community.
