I am interested in ethnic identity development in Multiracial Americans and Asian Americans. In particular, my research focuses on how identity integration relates to culturally specific risk factors (e.g., perceived discrimination, acculturation). I am also interested in how processes of ethnic identity integration relate to outcomes across multiple domains of resilience (e.g., academic achievement, psychological well-being, interpersonal relationships).

My research focuses on the influence of parents on adolescents' and young adults' socio-emotional development. In particular, I investigate the impact of culture on parents' beliefs and behavior, and my research has involved studies of both Mexican American and Chinese families. Through my current and future research, I aim to understand ethnic differences in parenting and the ways in which children's understanding about ethnic diversity influences their positive behavior. I study these research questions across relationships and contexts (i.e., within individuals, dyads, families, and ethnic groups). I also explore and use research methods (i.e., statistical models) and approaches that capture similarities and differences in parenting and behavior at individual, familial, and cultural levels.
