Biography

Associate Professor, Department of Psychology (Developmental), College of Liberal Arts and Sciences

Dr. Doane is a developmental psychologist with specializations in physiology and developmental psychopathology. She has training in human development and developmental psychophysiology with expertise in collecting, measuring and modeling physiological markers of stress in naturalistic settings. Her research concentrates on understanding daily socioemotional and stressful experiences of adolescents and young adults as they navigate the transition to college, with a focus on physiological stress activity and sleep. She has recently begun to incorporate culturally and genetically informed designs for studying daily associations among socio-emotional experiences, physiology and sleep in the prediction of subsequent health and academic achievement for youth in middle childhood, adolescence and young adulthood. Further, her newest program of research focuses on these processes in Latino youth and families.
