I am interested in the cultural structuring of personal relationships in the developmental process. I explore this issue through the study of (1) social change and its intergenerational effects, (2) cross-cultural value conflict between Latino immigrant families and the broader society, (3) intergroup relations among high school students, and (4) personal relationships among youth on the Internet.
