Ana Laura Fonseca is graduate student in the Family Studies and Human Development Ph.D. program at the University of Arizona. A central thread of her primary research involves understanding how culture is an active ingredient of shaping emotions in both psychological well-being and health-related behaviors within the context of dyadic systems (e.g., romantic couples, parent-child relationships). She is also interested in advanced statistical techniques such as structural equation and multilevel modeling when examining intrapersonal and interpersonal processes that occur among these variables. Lastly, as a first-generation college student she is interested in investigating the factors that are important in the development of academic motivation and resiliency in low-socioeconomic families. Her previous research focused on studying how self and ethnic identity relate to academic engagement and achievement.
