Storytelling Series with Dr. Jacinda Dariotis | March 23 at 12pm  

The Storytelling Series features the stories of faculty from across campus who are teaching, employing, and developing novel qualitative research techniques. The series seeks to highlight the journeys of our faculty – what led them here to UIUC – and take a deeper dive into the innovative methods they are applying in their current research.  

The Qualitative Research Initiative is proud to host Dr. Jacinda Dariotis, Director of the Family Resiliency Center and Professor in Human Development and Family Studies, as our storyteller for March. Dr. Dariotis researches ways to facilitate greater alignment between one’s intentions and behaviors to promote well-being. She investigates biosocial determinants of risk-taking, decision-making, stress responsivity and coping, and prevention and intervention programs. She addresses “wicked” problems through whole person research integrating theoretical and methodological approaches across many disciplines—public health, prevention science, biostatistics, evaluation and implementation sciences, behavioral endocrinology, and developmental psychopathology. 

We hope you will join us to hear about Dr. Dariotis’ journey. The session is offered in a hybrid format, both in-person in the Main Library, Room 220 (limited capacity) and via Zoom
