Applied Developmental Psychology: How peers affect each others' education and social and emotional competence

I earned my bachelor of science degree from Virginia Tech in 2011.  I majored in psychology and philosophy and worked with Dr. Julie Dunsmore in her social development lab looking at prosocial behaviors in 9 and 10 year olds.  My research interests consist of how peers affect each other's education and social and emotional competence.
