Research Interests

Briana's research interests broadly focus on how families, schools, and other social contexts influence the early academic and socioemotional wellbeing of racial and ethnic minority youth. Her research utilizes a strengths-based, culturally-relevant approach to promote racially and ethnically minoritized children’s developmental outcomes while also working to eliminate achievement and opportunity gaps.
