Professor Guanglei Hong has been named a Fellow of the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation for her project entitled “Economically Vulnerable Youth during the Great Recession: Risks and Protections.” Her research focuses on developing methods for understanding the impacts of social and educational policies on child and youth development over long timespans as they navigate multiple layers of social ecological systems. Her Guggenheim Fellowship will support research into the impacts of the Great Recession on youth transition to adulthood with short-term and long-term implications for developmental outcomes in multiple domains of life. The project compares the impacts across different classes of origin, gender, and racial/ethnic groups, examining how prior factors such as wealth and education have impacted individuals’ development paths since 2008.
