  • Agnes Ly, Associate Professor

    Associate Professor
    Director of Undergraduate Advising
    University of Delaware
    218 Wolf Hall
    Newark, DE 19716


    Dr. Ly focuses primarily on undergraduate teaching and advising. She is the Director of Undergraduate Advising for Psychology and Neuroscience majors. She also regularly teaches general psychology and statistics.

    Dr. Ly's scholarly research explores autism spectrum disorder (ASD), which ​is a lifelong developmental disability exhibiting impairments in social communication and interaction as well as stereotyped and restrictive behaviors and interests. Most recent estimates in the U.S. indicate that one child out of every 68 has a diagnosis. Grounded in family systems theory, Dr. Ly's research focuses on both the marital and coparenting relationships, and especially as to how they relate to adaptive child functioning. Most recently, her research interests have included using a multi-method approach (i.e., interviews, surveys, behavioral coding of observations) to explore these family dynamics.
