Dr. Cox’s research seeks to leverage the resources of a major land grant university by bridging different disciplines to understand and address the health and wellbeing of underserved individuals, families, and communities through basic and applied research. His primary focus has been on developing and testing evidence-based programs that can be scaled and disseminated through Cooperative Extension and other community partners such as school districts. More specifically, his funded research has focused on identifying and altering social determinants of physical, emotional, and behavioral outcomes among Hispanic immigrant youth and children of divorcing parents, with current applications extending into other ethnic groups.
