Research interests have centered on social identities, their development, and their outcomes. Recent work has focused on occupational aspirations and identities, looking at the ontogeny of career identities in adolescence, the interplay between occupational aspirations and achievement, as well as their impact on later psychological and behavioral outcomes. Her research in contemporary Ukraine is concentrated on understanding relevant and shifting social identifications, especially among the young. Current research interests focus on the longitudinal study of the socialization of racial/ethnic identity.
