Marta Genovez earned her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from The George Washington University. Her research interests include perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, Latino immigrant health, acculturation, and risk and protective factors for perinatal depression. For her second year project, Marta completed cross-national research identifying the risk factors of prenatal depression among Salvadoran women living in El Salvador and the United States. Her dissertation research involved a cross-sectional study to examine the moderating role of familism on the relationship between social support and postpartum depression and anxiety in Central American mothers. She is currently completing a predoctoral position at the University of Colorado-Boulder working with Dr. Sona Dimidjan on a peer-delivered behavioral activation intervention to prevent perinatal depression among Spanish-speaking mothers.
