Dr. Laurie Graham is an Assistant Professor at the University of Maryland School of Social Work. Dr. Graham received her MSW and PhD from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Social work where she was a Caroline H. and Thomas S. Royster Fellow.

Dr. Graham’s research interests include sexual and intimate partner violence and homicide prevention. She employs an intersectional lens to address violence prevention and has a particular interest in the development, implementation, and evaluation of programs and policies that seek to prevent multiple forms of violence perpetration. Dr. Graham is currently working on several projects related to these topics that include analyzing data from the National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS), systematically reviewing international literature on child homicide in the context of intimate partner violence and adolescent dating violence prevention, and building community partnerships to support on-the-ground violence prevention efforts. Her research is informed by her practice experience supporting survivors of sexual and intimate partner violence as well as implementing community-based violence prevention programs.

Dr. Graham teaches MSW courses related to social work practice with communities, organizations, and survivors of violence.
