Dr. Jeffrey Dew is an Associate Professor in the School of Family Life at Brigham Young University. He received a dual-titled PhD in Human Development and Family Studies and Demography from The Pennsylvania State University. Jeff started his career at Utah State University, where he taught statistics and research methods at the graduate level and family studies courses at the undergraduate level. He now teaches family theory and family finances courses at BYU. Dr. Dew's research focuses on the "daily life" issue of the association between family resources (i.e., money and time) and relationship quality. Examples of Jeff's recent projects include examining factors that protect couples' marital quality during financial difficulties, and a qualitative strengths-based analysis of how African American couples talk about the role of finances in their marriage. When not engaging with students or in research, Jeff enjoys reading and playing board and card games with his children.
