Developmental Psychology

Andrew Fuligni is the Director of the Adolescence, Ethnicity and Immigration Research Program. 

The dramatic rise in immigration is creating an adolescent population that is more ethnically and culturally diverse than ever before. Effective policies, programs, and treatments require a sophisticated understanding of development and adjustment among teenagers from ethnic minority and immigrant families.

Our mission is to conduct systematic research on the adjustment of adolescents from diverse ethnic and immigrant backgrounds. We employ multiple methods to explore issues such as family relationships, identity, discrimination, academic achievement, psychological well being, and physical health.  For more information, visit this page.
