Current Research

Dr. Evin Winkelman Richardson is a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Human Development and Family Science at the University of Georgia.  She earned her PhD in Human Development and Family Science at the University of Georgia in 2017, her Master’s degree in Human Development and Family Science at the University of Georgia in 2013, and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology at Georgia College and State University in 2011.  Dr. Richardson currently conducts research in the Couple and Relationship Enrichment (CARE) Lab and works on three federally-funded projects including the Fostering Relationship and Economic Enrichment Project (Project F.R.E.E.), Military REACH, and the Air Force Personal Financial Readiness Evaluation Project. Dr. Richardson studies family systems within high-stress contexts, with a particular focus on the marital and co-parenting relationships of foster and kinship care providers, military families, and parents of a child with a disability.  She is also interested in the resilience of these families and how family life education may improve well-being. Previous work includes research on military families in the Family and Community Resilience Laboratory, studying families with a child with a disability with the Institute on Human Development and Disabilities, and training and technical assistance for the National Resource Center for Healthy Marriage and Families where she was involved in planning and implementation of trainings as well as publishing materials for stakeholders on healthy relationship and marriage education.
