Associate Professor and Associate Chair
Office: Math/Psychology 325
Lab: Sondheim 507BL
Ph.D. – University of Wisconsin, Madison, 2006.
Area of Study:
Gender development, emotion, math and science attitudes and achievement, disease-related stigma, ethnicity, intersectionality, financial well-being.
I use multiple methods – including longitudinal studies, meta-analysis, behavioral observations and surveys – in my research on gender differences in emotions and attitudes about the self (e.g., self-efficacy), and the factors that explain variations in those gender differences. With my longitudinal study, the Philadelphia Adolescent Life Study, my students and I explore ethnic variations in gender differences about academics and gender roles, as well as the parental socialization of ethnic identity.
