Nicole Schmidt specializes in the utilization of quantitative and longitudinal methodologies in order to analyze risky behaviors and mental health during adolescence. She completed her PhD in Criminology and Criminal Justice in 2011. Her dissertation examined risky sexual behavior over the adolescent-young adult life course and its effects on the formation and quality of partner relationships in later adulthood. At the IUHR, Nicole studies the impact of residential mobility on the mental health of youth.
