About Juan Del Toro
I am currently a postdoctoral research fellow at the Learning Research and Development Center (LRDC) at the University of Pittsburgh. I recently completed my Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology at New York University. My dissertation, “Understanding the Nature of the Antecedents and Consequences of Multiple Sources of Ethnic-racial Discrimination from Early Adolescence to Young Adulthood” examines the differential precedents and consequences of individuals’ perceived ethnic-racial discrimination from peers versus non-peers, including adults inside and outside of school. My second line of research focuses on the effects of police contact among urban ethnic-racial minority youth.
