Lorey Wheeler

Co-director, Nebraska Academy of Methodology, Analytics and Psychometrics

Lorey Wheeler’s research interests broadly focus on the promotion of Latino youth adjustment, including outcomes related to interpersonal relationships, academic and career aspirations and attainment, externalizing and internalizing problems, and physical health. Grounded in cultural-ecological and developmental perspectives, her work addresses macro forces (e.g., gender and culture) and proximal contexts (e.g., families, workplaces, schools), and the mechanisms by which these are linked to youth adjustment.

A second focus of her research pertains to statistical models used to answer questions about complex ecological, developmental and relational phenomena, and the translation of these methods into tools useful to developmental, family and preventive-intervention scientists.
