Robyn Stein DeLuca earned her Ph.D. in Social and Health Psychology, with a Graduate Certificate in Women's Studies. Her research interests include the psychology of women's reproductive health; specifically determinants of postpartum depression and childbirth satisfaction. Her teaching interests include the psychology of women, social and abnormal psychology, feminist theory, women's health, and women’s interactions in the American healthcare system.
