Dr. Kennedy is an associate professor in the School of Social Work at Michigan State University. She has been committed to working to end violence against women since the late 1980s, when she first volunteered as a domestic violence advocate as an undergraduate student.
Dr. Kennedy’s work focuses on cumulative victimization and mental health and academic outcomes among adolescents and young adults. She is especially interested in using innovative methods such as the Life History Calendar and multilevel modeling to examine patterns of co-occurring and cumulative victimization over time and across partner relationships; she has expertise in both quantitative and qualitative methods.
Currently, she is using a relationship-level approach to examine physical and sexual intimate partner violence within a sample of young women ages 18-24, recruited from three different types of settings: a university, a two-year college, and community-based organizations serving low-income young women.
