We are the Human Development & Ecology Lab

A group of researchers with BIG questions about the human condition and how we grow over time in various ecologies -

HOME, SCHOOL, and COMMUNITY.

OUR METHOD

  • Approach our research from an ecological systems perspective;

  • Appreciate that any developmental            outcome of interest is a complex                byproduct of biological, social, and cultural forces;

  • Use multiple methods of data collection  (survey, interview, observation) with cross-sectional and longitudinal designs;

  • Value and engage in cross-disciplinary collaboration; and

  • Partner with community organizations that support individuals and families.
