Frances Lobo M.S.

Frances Lobo is a fourth-year doctoral student in the Developmental Psychology program at Penn State working with Drs. Erika Lunkenheimer and Kristin Buss. She received her B.S. in Neuroscience and Psychology from Duke University in 2013 and spent the following three years studying self-regulation in adolescents and college students with Dr. Rick Hoyle. Her research interests include understanding how family systems promote or inhibit child health, well-being, achievement, and resilience. Specifically, she would like to investigate how parental attitudes, beliefs, and discipline style can impact co-regulation within the parent-child dyad and mold the child’s goals and self-regulation skills. In her free time, Frances enjoys hiking, reading, cheering on the Green Bay Packers, singing, and playing her flute and ukulele.
