Dana Wood, Grant Writer

Dana Wood recently completed a PhD in developmental psychology at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.   Since January of 2010, she has been a National Institute of Child Health and Development Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Education at UCLA.  She is currently conducting a research project that examines how urban adolescents' experiences with poverty and racial discrimination constrain their educational outcomes, and on the protective role that educational institutions can play in these processes.  Dana's interest in how social and economic status impact individuals' experiences within the justice system inspired her to work with Innocence Matters.
