SDSU’s Research Horizons series highlights early career faculty and their burgeoning research projects.

How can we create healthy environments for families that have experienced domestic violence?

San Diego State University social work professor Ijeoma Nwabuzor Ogbonnaya studies difficult issues like domestic violence and child maltreatment. She researches, designs and hopes to eventually implement interventions and programs that serve victims in ways that are culturally and socially relevant to them.  

Ogbonnaya came to SDSU in 2014 from the University of Southern California, where she was an instructor and postdoctoral research fellow.
