Bio/Research

My general research interests are in the area of positive youth development, with a particular interest in the role of extracurricular activity participation. More specifically, my research focuses on the different types of activities (particularly sports activities) in which adolescents participate, and how this might predict positive developmental indices such as self-esteem, body esteem, self-efficacy and leadership ability. I am also interested in peer relations during adolescence and emerging adulthood, both at the group level and with respect to dyadic or specific friendship relations. My most recent research focuses on emerging adulthood and the transition to university, examining individual and relational factors which might impact this transition.
