Angela K Henneberger
Research Associate Professor
Dr. Angela K. Henneberger is a Research Associate Professor at the University of Maryland School of Social Work. Dr. Henneberger's research is situated at the intersection of education, developmental science, and prevention science, leveraging administrative data to examine the academic, social, and behavioral development of students in school contexts, with implications for policy and school-based prevention programming. Her most recent research, funded by the Institute of Education Sciences (R305A230398), leverages statewide administrative data to conduct long-term follow up analyses of an initial randomized controlled trial of a multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS) framework to improve students' academic and behavioral outcomes. The ultimate goal of her research is to strengthen the design and evaluation of policies and programs to prevent developmental problems and promote healthy development in school-based settings. Her research leveraging administrative data to support decisions in school-based settings has won awards from the Society for Prevention Research and the American Educational Research Association. Dr. Henneberger also serves as the Research Director and Principal Investigator of the Maryland Longitudinal Data System (MLDS) Center Research Branch, an interagency agreement with the state of Maryland to conduct advanced statistical analyses to inform state and local education policy decisions. Dr. Henneberger received her Ph.D. from the University of Virginia, where she was awarded an Institute of Education Sciences (IES) predoctoral fellowship. She completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Pennsylvania State University in the Prevention and Methodology Training (PAMT) program.
