Curriculum Vitae: Jenee Duncan


Dr. Jeneé Duncan is an Assistant Professor of Prevention Science and Human Development and Family Science in the Department of Family, Youth, and Community Sciences. She holds appointment is teaching, research, and extension. Prior to joining the faculty at UF, she was a postdoctoral research associate at Texas State University in the Department of Human Development and Family Sciences. In this role, she worked with a federally-funded, school-based intervention program that provided couple, coparenting, and life skills to pregnant and parenting adolescents. She received her doctorate from the University of Georgia in Human Development and Family Science and is also a Certified Family Life Educator (CFLE).

Dr. Duncan’s program of research has three major foci : 1) couple and coparenting dynamics, 2) sociocultural factors that inform diverse family dynamics and adjustment; and 3) relationship education. Through this body of research, she examines the processes through which individual and relational vulnerabilities and strengths impact couple and coparenting relationship quality and stability in order to inform culturally and socially relevant interventions to support and strengthen families. Additionally, she examines the unique experiences of diverse populations (i.e., ethnic and racially diverse families, adolescent parents).

 Dr. Duncan teaches FYC 3112 Contemporary Family Problems and Interventions, FYC 4660 Family Policy, and FYC 6230 Family Theories.

In her spare time, she enjoys spending quality time with family and friends, traveling, and getting lost in new books.
