Dr. Yu's Lab

The Self-Regulation Development in Ecological Dynamic Systems (SeEDS) Lab focuses on self-regulation and socioemotional development among children from diverse backgrounds. Our lab is interested in examining how fluctuation and growth in self-regulation are related to parenting and other factors in multi-layered ecological systems, such as families and classrooms. We are particularly interested in applying intensive longitudinal methods, such as daily diary, to capture the dynamic nature of self-regulation and the dynamic person-context interaction.
