Cross-cultural parenting; Immigrant families and socialization patterns in the U.S.
Jason Chiang received his Ph.D. in Human Development and Family Science from Syracuse University, Master’s degree in Educational Psychology and Methodology from SUNY Albany, and Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from University of Toronto. As a first-generation Canadian, Jason immigrated to Canada in 2001 after finishing high school in Taiwan.
Informed by his own experiences as an immigrant student and a parent, he is deeply fascinated by how familial, school, and cultural factors affect immigrant children’s capacity to cope with challenging educational and environmental situations and succeed.
Before moving to Texas, Jason had previously taught at University of Akron as Assistant Professor of Instruction, and at Berkshire Community College as Assistant Professor of Psychology.
