Wei is a fifth-year graduate student in developmental psychology. She received her master’s degree in education from Beijing Normal University in 2015 and a master’s degree in developmental psychology in December 2017. Her primary interest is in studying how contexts and culture impact adolescent development. At Penn State, she works with Dr. Dawn Witherspoon and Dr. José Soto. Her master’s thesis project focuses on how neighborhood and parenting jointly impact Chinese American adolescents’ achievement and depressive symptoms. She is now studying how culture-related experience (e.g., discrimination and parental ethnic-racial socialization) and contexts (family and neighborhood) influence ethnic minority adolescents’ mental health.
