Development

Faculty members in the Development area are focused on interdisciplinary research on lifespan development. They are interested in bringing an interdisciplinary perspective to studying human development in context, as defined by Urie Bronfenbrenner. Faculty have diverse interest that span the whole lifespan, starting from infant cognition, all the way to aging and gerontology research. Many faculty members lead and actively promote an interdisciplinary and integrative developmental science to understand the dynamic system of influences on human conditions and to effect change and improvement in the everyday life of the individual, family, and community. In addition, they also provide research-based outreach programs within the New York State Cooperative Extension system, fulfilling the land-grant mission of Cornell University.
