The NICE Lab is a center for research on narrative, identity, culture, and education. We are interested in each in isolation, as well as all possible permutations of the four.
Beyond the acronym, we are fundamentally interested in integration. We conduct research that integrates different sub-disciplines of psychology (developmental, counseling, personality, social) and beyond (education, sociology, critical theory). We conduct research that integrates quantitative and qualitative research methods, working within a mixed methods framework. We conduct research that integrates basic and applied research, particularly in relation to educational access and equity. This is what we do.
