Background
Wadiya Udell, PhD is an Assistant Professor of Community Psychology in
the Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences program at the University of Washington Bothell.  Dr. Udell received her doctorate in developmental psychology from Columbia University.  Following her graduate work, she completed a postdoctoral fellowship in HIV prevention research at the HIV Center for Clinical and Behavioral Studies at the New York State Psychiatric Institute and Columbia University.

Research
Dr. Udell’s research focuses on understanding the role of culture and context in promoting sexual health, and in preventing sexual risk behaviors among adolescents of color.
 In addition to conducting basic research, she is engaged in university/community collaborations adapting effective evidence-based interventions for socially at-risk adolescents living in impoverished communities.

Ultimately, the goals of her research are to a) understand the contexts and processes by which adolescents engage in risk behaviors, b) incorporate these insights into existing interventions, and c) work toward ensuring that effective interventions are adopted and implemented by creating interventions that consider, respect and reflect the values of the various communities for which they are created.
