Research Interests 
My research focuses on adolescent peer relationships and ethnicity within broader social contexts. Specifically, I study the individual and contextual factors under which peer victimization predicts greater psychosocial, physical, and academic maladjustment. I also examine the interplay between ethnic diversity in peer groups--primarily in school or friendship settings--and adolescent functioning.
