Dr. Jennifer Ross received her doctoral degree in Human Development and Family Studies from Texas Tech University. Her dissertation examined social-contextual factors related to maternal caregiving behaviors and infant attachment security in Mexican-American families. Her current research focuses on the influence of coparenting and acculturation on maternal sensitivity and insensitive caregiving in Mexican-American mothers with a toddler, and also explores whether mother-infant attachment relationships are universal or culture-specific.
