Marta Benito-Gomez, Ph.D., is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with the Attachment & Biobehavioral Catch-Up Lab at the University of Delaware. Dr. Benito-Gomez received her doctoral and master’s degree in Human Development and Family Studies from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and her bachelor’s degree in Psychology from The University of Santiago de Compostela (Spain). Her research interests focus on understanding the dynamic interplay of biopsychosocial influences in relation to young children’s social, emotional, and behavioral functioning. More specifically, Dr. Benito-Gomez is interested in examining the effects of contextual factors (e.g., parenting, caregiver mental health, socioeconomic risk, culture) on children’s adjustment with a focus on understanding the underlying protective and detrimental mechanisms that explain such influences. She is also interested in the dissemination and implementation of evidence-based parenting interventions that support children and their families, in particular those from low-income communities facing multiple adversities.
