Dr. Wonjung Oh’s research interests are in social and emotional development in childhood and early adolescence with a particular interest in risk and protective factors for adaptive and maladaptive behavior. She is especially interested in the study of the developmental transition periods in school and family environments focusing on the influence of child characteristics, parent, peer and contextual factors (culture, school climate) on the child’s psychosocial functioning. Wonjung actively seeks novel, innovative approaches to address applied research questions pertaining to children’s development and the manner in which child, family and peer factors facilitate children’s developmental outcomes.
