Pauline Ho is a Ph.D. candidate in the Human Development area of the Department of Educational Psychology where she is advised by Dr. Brad Brown. Pauline graduated cum laude from the University of California, Irvine where she double majored in Education Sciences and Social Policy and Public Service. Her research at UC-Irvine has primarily focused on investigating effective pedagogies for teaching English and discipline-specific knowledge to diverse student learners.


Following the work that she had already begun as an undergraduate, Pauline’s research interests focus on investigating factors that influence student’s college transition and experiences in higher education. More specifically, she is interested in how emerging adults, particularly racial and ethnic minorities, become who they are and how their sense of identities impact their well-being and other important educational decisions in their lives (e.g., choosing a college major or occupation).
