My research focuses on the interplay of leisure and lifespan development as outlined by Erik Erikson, with a special focus on the emerging adulthood life phase (18-25 age range). My dissertation work investigated the intersection of identity development, well-being, and perceptions of free time among emerging adults. I continue to work with colleagues on research exploring leisure participation and its relationship with development in areas of health and well-being, body image, cultural learning, and student engagement.
