Research Interests

Mandy is currently researching how parents become socialized for their parenting roles.  This research involves understanding how day-to-day interactions shape the perceptions of both men and women, and what they think about parenthood.

Mandy is also working on a collaborative project, which looks at how parental support affects young adults.  This research involves analyzing large datasets with the use of statistical software.
