KEVIN KOROUS

Kevin M. Korous is a graduate student in the PhD program in Family and Human Development at the T. Denny Sanford School of Social and Family Dynamics at Arizona State University. His applied research focuses on examining how socioeconomic status and racial discrimination is related to development across the life span. Kevin’s past work investigated the relation between racial discrimination and cortisol output to better understand how experiences of racial discrimination impact health.

His recent work examined the relation between the different components of socioeconomic status (e.g., income, educational attainment) and internalizing and externalizing behavior problems. He plans to extend this body of work by elucidating how these components work independently or interactively to affect multiple domains of functioning, and how this relation varies across different demographic groups (i.e., developmental period, sex, and racial/ethnic groups).
