Keating’s research focuses on integrating knowledge about developmental and biodevelopmental processes, population patterns in developmental health, and social factors affecting individual and population development. A major thrust of this work has been to identify the social circumstances that have an enduring impact on developmental health, and to discover the developmental mechanisms through which those social circumstances operate. A longer term goal of this line of work is to identify the key aspects of social environments that shape developmental experiences in early childhood through the adolescent transition, in ways that can be addressed at the level of policy and practice.

Current course offerings include a graduate seminar on social disparities in developmental health, an undergraduate course in Psychology of Adolescence, and an undergraduate offering in advanced research in adolescent development.
