Jorge Carvalho Pereira is a graduate student in the Psychology master’s program at Rutgers University and received his B.A. in Psychology from the University of Delaware in 2015.  His research interests focus on understanding the developmental influence and contributions of protective and promotive factors (such as early parent-child relationships and individual biological processes existing within early childhood experiences) and how they relate to developmental sequelae.  Jorge collaborates with Dr. James Morgante, on several efforts aimed at supporting family strengthening efforts in South Jersey, including the Pascale Sykes Foundation’s Strengthening Families Initiative.
