Personal Statement

My research interests involve the contextual study of adolescent lives and identities. I am interested in the process of adolescent learning and development as it unfolds within local environments so we can understand how to create settings that better support youth, especially those at risk due to economic or sociocultural factors.

Deutsch is affiliated with Youth-Nex, the U.Va. Center to Promote Effective Youth Development.
