Description of Research
I am interested in the relation between racial/ethnic socialization practices and academic outcomes among African American adolescents. Furthermore, I investigate socio-cultural factors in ethnic minority youth development, including resources (e.g., racial socialization) and stressors (e.g., discrimination, financial hardship).
