Research Interests

Kimberly Updegraff's research interests focus on the role of family and peer relationships (i.e., mothers, fathers, siblings, and close friends) in youth development from early adolescence to young adulthood. Central to her work is understanding the role of gender in adolescents' lives, including the different experiences of girls and boys growing up in families and the roles that mothers versus fathers assume. A second important theme over the last 15 years has been the role of culture, particularly Mexican culture, in the lives of adolescents and their families.
