Biography
Associate Professor, School of Social and Family Dynamics, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Education Pennsylvania State University, M.S., Ph.D. 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 10 years has been the role of culture, particularly Mexican culture, in the lives of adolescents and their families. In collaboration with Dr. Umana-Taylor and colleagues at Penn State (Dr. McHale and Dr. Crouter), Dr. Updegraff currently is conducting a federally-funded study of Mexican American families raising adolescents and young adults. Mothers, fathers, adolescents, and their older siblings participate in home interviews and a series of nightly phone calls to collect time-use data. Current publications from this project emphasize the role of gender and culture in shaping family dynamics and youth well being.
