Liwei Zhang

Research Assistant Professor, Brown School

My research examines the impact of economic resources on child maltreatment risk and children’s mental health and how financial support policies alter those effects. I pay particular attention to the immigrant population, seeking policies and programs that target risk and protective factors related to race/ethnicity, language, immigration status, and country of origin. I answer those questions by linking and analyzing cross-sector data at the individual, geographic, and time levels.
