Funded Research Clusters
We seek to better understand and re-design education that is with, for, and by young people as based in culture, context, and kindness.
We examine the folds and influences of the digital age on young people over time, place, and culture to better understand the deep paradox they encounter..

We investigate various holistic models of wellbeing to understand how youth navigate their wellbeing and thus better support pressing health, social, and environmental concerns.
