Human Development faculty members are involved in a wide range of research topics on children, adolescents, and adults, and their families, and communities. Our faculty examine the biological, psychological, and contextual factors related to development across the lifespan, from infancy through older adulthood. These interdisciplinary projects provide students with numerous opportunities to actively participate in cutting-edge research on topics with important implications for programs and policies aimed at promoting healthy cognitive, social-emotional, and physical development. Students can participate as volunteers, for course credit, and in some cases, for part-time employment. Learn more about our research faculty and their current projects below.
