Myles Durkee, PhD

Assistant Professor of Psychology

Dr. Myles Durkee is an assistant professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Michigan. His research examines racial code-switching, cultural invalidations, and identity threats perpetrated by in-group and out-group members to determine how these experiences are uniquely associated with important psychosocial outcomes (e.g., mental health, identity development, & academic achievement). He also examines the process of identity development during late adolescence and emerging adulthood to determine how social identities are influenced by interpersonal relationships (e.g., peer & family dynamics) and environmental factors (e.g., school contexts & racial climate). Dr. Durkee received a BA in psychology from Pomona College and a PhD in educational psychology: applied developmental science from the University of Virginia. He completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Chicago, and a second postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Michigan.
