Current Research Interests

Dr. Mary Dietrich is a co-investigator or consultant on a diverse array of funded research studies originating from faculty in the Schools of Nursing and Medicine. Many of those research studies are represented in the list of publications below. Dr. Dietrich's own interests revolve around the use and development of statistical methods that bridge the psychological, sociological, and biological sciences, in particular systems-level and longitudinal methods. Her content focus tends to be in the areas of measuring and modeling human development systems, with a particular interest in the prevention of infant and child maltreatment.
