Brief Biography

Dr. Carlomagno Panlilio is an assistant professor of education with an appointment in the Department of Educational Psychology, Counseling, and Special Education at the Pennsylvania State University. He is also a faculty member with the Child Maltreatment Solutions Network, a faculty affiliate with the Population Research Institute, and a faculty affiliate with the Child Study Center.

Dr. Panlilio’s work is focused on explicating proximal development and learning processes, such as self-regulation (SR) and self-regulated learning (SRL), which mediate early experiences of maltreatment and later educational outcomes. Specifically, his program of research, guided by a conceptual framework that brings together an interdisciplinary perspective drawn from child welfare, developmental science, and educational psychology, focuses on building the empirical evidence for this model via three main strands. These include 1) understanding basic processes surrounding the link across early experiences of maltreatment, SR/SRL, and education outcomes; 2) understanding and improving educational support for students with a history of maltreatment; and 3) improving statistical, measurement, and evaluation methodologies to better capture the complexities inherent in development, learning, and prevention efforts related to maltreatment. This research-to-practice translational cycle has been informed by Dr. Panlilio’s experiences, currently as a researcher, and previously as a clinical practitioner working closely with child welfare systems and schools.

Prior to his faculty appointment, Dr. Panlilio practiced as a licensed clinical marriage and family therapist. He has worked in private practice, community agencies, treatment foster care, and a residential treatment facility for adolescents. He has been in clinical practice since 2005 and often worked with at-risk children and families. He previously served as the Secretary and later Vice Chair for the Maryland Board of Professional Counselors and Therapists, and also served as the Chair for the Ethics Committee.

Dr. Panlilio received his Ph.D. in Human Development from the University of Maryland, College Park, with a specialization in developmental science and a certificate in education measurement, statistics, and evaluation.
