I will be accepting graduate students for entry in 2017!

Areas of expertise: 

Adolescent development

Latino youth sociocultural stressors

Sociocultural stressors and HPA axis

Advanced statistical analyses (latent growth modeling, latent categorical/profile analysis, multi-level modeling)

Research Focus: 

My program of research focuses on Latino families and youths’ well-being. My work operates from a general stress process model and draws from the risk and resilience literature to (a) identify relevant challenges related to Latino families’ and youths’ well-being (b) explore biological processes mediating the link between challenges and well-being and (c) identify the ways in which individual and family cultural orientations, beliefs, and behaviors moderate stress processes. My research interests are explored in individuals’ naturalistic environments using daily and weekly diary methodology alongside more long-term developmental approaches.

Current Projects: 

Health and Relationships During College Study: A weekly diary study of Latino and African American college students’ discrimination and physiological/behavioral response. PIs: Katharine Zeiders and Antoinette Landor (University of Missouri)
