Adjunct Scientist

Jessica H. Mirman, PhD is an Applied Developmental Psychologist and Scientist in the Craig-Dalsimer Division of Adolescent Medicine at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) and an Adjunct Scientist at the Center for Injury Research and Prevention at CHOP. She has a long-standing interest in the development and evaluation of interventions and social programs and policies with an overall goal of advancing developmental theory and improving children’s health by translating basic research into evidence-based practice. To this end, Dr. Mirman studies how interactions with parents and peers affect the development of children's health behaviors in two domains: injury/safety and health management.

Dr. Mirman has led program evaluations and intervention studies for caregivers, children, and youth across several domains (e.g., nutrition, violence prevention, positive youth development, and injury prevention) and has authored numerous technical reports, evaluation reports, and research briefs. Her current research includes the development and evaluation of the TeenDrivingPlan, an internet-based parent-directed intervention to improve parent supervision of novice teen drivers. She also serves as Program Director for the Professionals, Patients, and Parents Partnering to Improve Adolescent Health (P4) program based in the Division of Adolescent Medicine.

Dr. Mirman received her PhD in Applied Developmental Psychology from Fordham University. She can be contacted at mirmanj@email.chop.edu.
