Dr. Antionette Landor 

Assistant Professor and Co-Founder, Associate Director, Center for Body Image Research and Policy (CBIRP) 

Dr. Landor's research broadly focuses on how family and sociocultural contexts impact adolescent and young adult development. She does this through studies that address two lines of work. The first is centered on understanding how factors from multiple ecological levels (e.g., family, religion, culture) interact to influence sexual and romantic relationship behavior, and identifying the underlying explanatory mechanisms. Her second focus is understanding how skin tone (i.e., lightness/darkness of skin color) influences family processes (e.g., parenting and racial socialization) as well as sexual and romantic relationship behavior.
