Now an associate professor in the School of Human Ecology and a faculty research associate in the Population Research Center, Gershoff continues to delve into the impact of spanking (and other, more severe forms of physical punishment) on children. She also looks more broadly at the impacts of poverty, community violence and neighborhoods on child and youth development over time.
