Sibling Peer Research Group

Please provide a brief description of your research interests

Sibling and friend relationships from early childhood through early adulthood (longitudinal study); sibling relationships among various cultural groups (currently Latinx, Caribbean-American, Chinese-American, and African immigrants, but I'm open to other possibilities).

Are you looking for student research assistants for the upcoming semesters?

Yes

If yes, how many students are you looking for?

About 5-6 students 

What semesters are you looking for?

Spring 2022 

What years do you prefer students to be?

First year, Sophomores, and Juniors

In what aspects are student research assistants involved in your lab?

Depending on the specific project, research assistants might be involved in contacting participants for follow-up studies, interviewing participants, transcribing interviews, coding transcripts and videotapes, tabulating data, entering data on the computer, analyzing data, and writing up results for presentation at GREAT day and professional conferences. 

What skills are you looking for in student research assistants?

Strong academic record, experience working with children or adolescents, experience work as part of a group or team. Preferred: Psyc 215 or 216.

Is there anything else you would like to say?

I do not normally admit seniors to my research group because it takes about a semester to be trained in the necessary data collection and coding methods.
