Dr. O'Neal's major research interests include development over the life course and cumulative life experiences that are influential in health and well-being outcomes. Her research focuses primarily on the adolescent life stage and unique populations typically deemed as vulnerable, such as miltiary families and racial/ethnic minorities as well as longitudinal data sets that allow the exploration of precursors to positive health outcomes.
