Anupama Joshi, Professor and Coordinator of the Child Development Program received her Ph.D. from Purdue University and is interested in studying children’s social relationships in both family and peer contexts.  Her research has focused on the linkage between children’s conflict resolution strategies with peers and their conflict resolution strategies with parents.  What interests her most is what we understand by social competence as a function of how we measure/study it.  She is comparing how schoolage children in India and in the United States resolve conflicts among themselves and also children’s self and their conflict resolution strategies.
