Jacque DeAnda holds a B.A. in Applied Psychology and Human Development from Boston College and an M.A. in Human Development and Family Sciences from The University of Texas at Austin. Jacque's research interests are broadly in understanding the ways divorce, single parenthood, and repartnering transitions affect family adjustment across the lifespan. In summer 2018, she completed an internship with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation conducting child support policy analysis. Following graduation, she aspires to continue building her career around transforming empirical research findings into federal evaluation-based programs and policies that will promote well-being for fragile American children and families. 

Jacque's research interests are primarily in understanding the relational processes associated with individuals' needs to belong following divorce. More specifically, she strives to understand how continued relationships between former spouses influence post-divorce social dynamics, including repartnering and parenting. Further, she aims to understand how these complex social dynamics promote or hinder well-being following divorce.
