Shou-Chun (Nathan) Chiang is a second-year doctoral student in Human Development and Family Studies. His research focuses on family relationships and adolescent emotional development and risk behaviors. Specifically, he is interested in understanding how day-to-day parent-youth interactions impact adolescent emotions and alcohol use initiation, and how these short-term processes are related to developmental outcomes, such as substance use disorder, addiction, and internalizing symptoms.
His Prevention and Methodology Training program mentors are Sunhye Bai, Penn State assistant professor of human development and family studies; and Ashley Linden-Carmichael, associate research professor with the Edna Bennett Pierce Prevention Research Center.
The Prevention and Methodology Training (PAMT) program, funded by a T32 grant from the National Institute on Drug Abuse, trains predoctoral and postdoctoral researchers in the integration of prevention science and statistical methodology for the behavioral sciences.
