I study the manner in which parenting styles and domain-specific practices of mothers
and fathers are related to academic achievement, social competence, and mental health
of children and adolescents. I also study the quality of the parent-child relationship
which includes the frequency and intensity of parent-adolescent conflicts, conflict
resolution strategies, and adolescent disclosure of their activities to their parents.
I have studied and continue to study cultural variations in parenting styles and practices
and developmental outcomes. My research interest is also to study cultural similarities
and differences in moral reasoning of young adults about justice and care.
