Diversity-Related Research

There are several ways in which our work in the co-Lab includes diversity-related studies. These are particularly evident in the types of studies that students have done in the lab over the years and examples appear below. Additional opportunities to engage in diversity-related research include extensions of our work in developmental pathways to substance use, in children’s gratitude, and in methodological applications.

Examples of prior work include the following:
