Raquael Joiner is a Research Assistant Professor of Occupational Science and Occupational Therapy at USC. She received her PhD in Developmental Psychology with an Advanced Quantitative Social Science Minor from the University of Notre Dame in August 2020, and thereafter, she joined the UCLA Marriage and Close Relationships Lab as a Postdoctoral Scholar. Dr. Joiner’s work has been published in high-impact scientific outlets such as American Psychologist and Psychology and Aging. Dr. Joiner’s research broadly focuses on theories and methods (i.e., research designs and statistical models) involved in the study of change across different timescales (e.g., days, years). She specifically applies these theories and methods to understand how people and relationships change, with the goal of harnessing the power of change to promote the health and well-being of a diverse aging population. Dr. Joiner enjoys fostering collaborative, multidisciplinary research teams to advance her research agenda, and as a first-generation college graduate from a low-income, single parent headed household, she is committed to providing positive learning environments that support diverse, underrepresented junior scholars in the sciences.
