Luke W. Hyde

Associate Professor of Psychology, College of Literature, Science, and the Arts

Professor Hyde’s research aims to better understand risk and resilience across development in children and families, particularly the development of child psychopathology and antisocial behaviors (e.g., aggression, violence, rule breaking). Much of this work focuses on families living in poverty or with fewer resources in order to understand how children succeed or struggle in this environment.

His lab research explores negative behavioral outcomes associated with poverty,  how poverty may impact brain functioning, and how and why some youth and families are resilience even when facing adversity related to poverty. I’m also a licensed clinical psychologist and have trained in preventative interventions for youth and families at higher risk for poor outcomes due to their exposure to poverty and other adversity.
