Dr. Heinze’s primary research interests include belonging motivation and developmental transitions in adolescence and emerging adulthood. He is also interested in the formation of social judgments that lead to social exclusion/ostracism or prejudicial behavior, and how valence in social climate affects individuals’ mental and physical health. He assists in the analyses of crime, property assessment and survey data and in the development of research reports, presentations and publications.
