Dr. David Weissman

Can public policy interventions reduce inequality in neurodevelopment and mental health?

David Weissman is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at California State University, Dominguez Hills. He obtained his PhD in Psychology from the University of California, Davis, and was a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University. His research examines how childhood adversity impacts neurodevelopment in adolescence and how this manifests in risk for psychopathology. Importantly, childhood adversity occurs within the context of broader societal structures that influence who experiences adversity and the resources available to them, and Dr. Weissman has conducted pioneering work examining the role of the macrostructural context in neurodevelopment and mental health.
