Rosa Viñas-Racionero joined the University of Nebraska Public Policy Center in 2019 after graduating with a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. She also has an M.A. in Forensic Psychology from John Jay College of Criminal Justice. Dr. Viñas-Racionero’s research interests focus on assessment and management of individuals who pose a risk of targeted violence. Specifically, much of her past research centers on understanding the factors that contribute to different targeted violent phenomena (e.g., stalking, family violence, college campus attacks, and workplace violence) as well as on the effectiveness of the different interventions used to manage the individuals who are at risk of engaging in such forms of violence.
