Research Interests

Dr. Manke’s research focuses on the interplay of children’s familial relationships, broader contextual factors and developmental outcomes. Her current research project funded by the National Institutes of Mental Health addresses the role siblings play in children’s coping with type 2 diabetes. Dr. Manke also collaborates with several youth-serving agencies (i.e., tutoring-mentoring programs, character education companies) to complete long-term evaluation studies. Dr. Manke is currently serving as the program evaluator for the CSULB art museum.
