Welcome to the Culture, Child, and Adolescent Development Laboratory


Members in CCADLAB are interested in: (1) the study of the interactions between individual, peer, and family factors in the social-emotional development and physical health of children, adolescents, and emerging adults; and (2) the exploration of multiple pathways in which cultural and contextual factors contribute to development. We use interdisciplinary approaches and mixed-methodologies to address our research questions. Our research focuses on families from minoritized ethnic-racial, religious, and immigrant backgrounds in the United States and across different countries.
