Katherine Maurer, Assistant Professor

Dr. Katherine Maurer obtained her PhD in Social Work at New York University Silver School of Social Work in 2015. She is a licensed social worker with a Master of Social Work (Hunter College School of Social Work, New York) and worked in New York City as a clinical social worker and a trauma therapist. Her interdisciplinary research focuses on adolescent mental and behavioral health during the transition to adulthood. Particularly, Dr. Maurer studies the physiological impact of exposure to extreme stressors, such as violence and poverty, on the development of self-regulation capacities in adolescence and adults. 


In addition, Dr. Maurer has held research fellowships with New York University’s McSilver Institute for Poverty Policy and Research and the University of California-Davis Center for Poverty Research. Her poverty research focuses on the development and application of social capital theory in social work policy and practice and the social reproduction of disadvantage in the context of gender, socioeconomic status, and ethnic/racial identities. Dr. Maurer is currently PI of a collaborative research project through the McGill Centre for Child and Family Research and the Old Brewery Mission exploring these interests in the context of homelessness.
