Adam J. Hoffman, PhD studies the development of ethnic-racial and gender identities among racially marginalized youth. In particular, he investigates how individual characteristics and socializing agents impact identity development. He also seeks to flesh out our understanding of the relationships between ethnic-racial and gender identities and academic and mental health outcomes through exploring mediating and moderating mechanisms. Finally, Dr. Hoffman investigates the potential of ethnic-racial and gender identities by developing interventions to leverage social identities assets to protect against the harmful effects of discrimination and enhance well-being.
