Jun Wang Ph.D.

Dr. Wang is a Research Assistant Professor at the Institute for Applied Research in Youth Development at Tufts University. Currently, she is the Project Director of the "CAMP" Project: a study exploring character development of boys associated with the Boy Scouts of America, funded by the John Templeton Foundation. She is interested in children’s socioemotional development with a specific focus on self-regulation processes - how cognitive, emotional, motivational, and behavioral processes are coordinated to overcome challenges and achieve goals. She also studies the socialization processes that influence children's self-regulation development, such as parent-child interaction in emotional contexts and culture-specific parenting practices.

Dr. Wang received her B.S. in Applied Psychology from Nanjing Normal University in 2006, her M.Ed. in Developmental and Educational Psychology from Zhejiang University in 2008, and her Ph.D. in Applied Developmental Sciences from Colorado State University in 2013.
