Claire Growney received her Ph.D. in Psychology with an emphasis on Lifespan Development from North Carolina State University, and was a postdoctoral research scholar at Washington University in St. Louis in the Psychological and Brain Sciences department before joining the Stanford Longevity Center as an impact fellow. She is interested in how intergenerational relationships benefit communities broadly, as well as individuals across the lifespan.
