My research focuses on adolescent development in context, ethnic minority and immigrant families, and parenting of adolescents. I am currently conducting a longitudinal study examining Chinese-American teenagers and their parents on issues of acculturation, parenting styles, family conflict and cohesion, and adolescent adjustment. I am also interested in the relations between ethnic identity, perceived discrimination and adolescent well-being.
