Kenneth H. Rubin (B.A., McGill University, 1968; Ph.D., Pennsylvania State University, 1971) is Professor of Human Development and Quantitative Methodology and Founding Director, Center for Children, Relationships, and Culture at the University of Maryland.

Recent research has focused on developing interventions for young children at-risk for the development of anxiety disorders; examining the social, emotional, and social-cognitive conesequences of childhood traumatic brain injury; and studying, longitudinally, the development of internalizing, externalizing, and civically competent behaviors from childhood through early adulthood. Many of his over 300 peer-reviewed publications have been co-authored by colleagues on five continents. Rubin was the elected President of the International Society for the Study of Behavioral Development (1998-2002), an elected member of the Society for Research in Child Development Governing Council (2009-2015), and an elected member of the American Psychological Association, Developmental Psychology Division Executive Board (1987-1990). He has served as Associate Editor of Child Development (1981-1984; 1998-2001) and as a review panelist for NIH and SSHRCC (Canada). Rubin is a Fellow of the American and Canadian Psychological Associations, the Association of Psychological Science, and the International Society for the Study of Behavioral Development. Among his honors are the Society for Research in Child Development Award for distinguished Contributions to Understanding International, Cultural and Contextual Diversity in Child Development; the International Society for the Study of Behavioral Development Award for Distinguished Contributions to the International Advancement of Research and Theory in Behavioral Development; the Developmental Psychology Mentor Award of the American Psychological Association; the Pickering Awardfor Outstanding Contribution to Developmental Psychology in Canada; and the Killam Research Fellowship (Canada Council). His book, The Friendship Factor (Viking/Putnam/Penguin), received the National Parenting Publications Gold Award in 2002.
