EDH Research Group

We aim to promote health and well-being by advancing the understanding of how the environment affects development and individual functioning.

The Environment, Development, and Health (EDH) research group is led by Dr. Amanda L. Roy and is located in the Psychology Department at the University of Illinois at Chicago.

Our research focuses on the ways that environmental risks (e.g. poverty, crime) and protections (e.g. organizational resources, community engagement) can influence health and development across the life course. Additional information about ongoing projects can be found on our research page.



Dr. Roy is reviewing graduate applications and accepting students for the 2020-2021 academic year.
