Eileen P. Anderson-Fye, Ed.D. is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology at Case Western Reserve University whose research centers around the well-being of adolescents in contexts of socio-cultural change. She studies how adolescents - already going through normative developmental changes - make sense of changing contexts around them in ways that both help and hinder their well-being, and particularly mental health. Dr. Anderson-Fye's work aims to identify and explain processes by which adolescents engage in pathways to well-being or distress with the ultimate aim of interventions in practice and policy to increase adolescent well-being and reduce distress.
Dr. Anderson-Fye's work has appeared in a variety of scholarly publications including the Harvard Educational Review, Culture, Medicine, and Psychiatry, ETHOS, The International Encyclopedia of Adolescence, and The Handbook of Eating Disorders and Obesity.
