Darius received his PhD in Community Psychology and Prevention Research from the University of Illinois at Chicago. Prior to coming to Northwestern in 2013, he was a faculty member at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. His research focuses on the development and testing of interventions to reduce the burden of mental illness on families in the perinatal period and into early childhood, with a particular emphasis on intervention integrated into community-based settings. Much of his work has examined the effectiveness of the Mothers and Babies intervention on preventing the onset and worsening of perinatal depression, with extramural funding for this research coming from the National Institutes of Health, Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Outside of work, you are likely to find Darius enjoying Chicago’s amazing restaurants, listening to live music, or attending baseball games at Wrigley Field.
