Kingsley Schroeder's research interests center on children and adolescent identity development. She is particularly interested in gender and ethnic identities, both in how they are developed and the potential consequences that these identities may hold for important developmental outcomes (e.g., mental health, sexual behavior). More recently, Schroeder also has applied these constructs to Latinx immigrant populations to better understand how a bicultural experience may affect identity development. In addition to these content areas, she has experience with applying a variety of developmental methodologies, including SEM, growth curve modeling, EMA, person-centered analyses, and nonlinear growth models. In the classroom, Schroeder focuses on the ways in which psychology topics apply to all areas of students' lives, using experiential and collaborative learning techniques.
