Graduate Student Research Assistant
My research interests center on understanding the ways in which achievement motivation is socialized in adolescents and young adults. Specifically, my work seeks to understand the ways in which parents and others contribute to the academic, social, and vocational development of adolescents and young adults through verbal socialization messages. Within this line of study I have a strong interest in understanding the ways in which parent and child gender and family SES have an impact on these relationships.
