Alexis Redding is a developmental psychologist and leading scholar studying the college experience. Her research focuses on the transition to college and examines how students navigate the undergraduate years. This work combines the intellectual traditions of psychology, organizational theory, and ethnography, allowing her to capture the nuances of student life at a range of colleges and universities around the world. In a recent book co-authored with Nancy Hill, The End of Adolescence: The Lost Art of Delaying Adulthood, she draws from a lost archive of student interviews to examine parallels in the student experience across generations.

Redding was a Presidential Fellow at Harvard University where she earned her doctorate in Human Development & Education. Today, she is the Faculty Co-Chair of Higher Education and a Lecturer at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. In addition to her research and teaching, she has counseled students in both the United States and Europe for more than two decades. She currently serves as a graduate student advisor at HGSE and is a member of the Board of First-Year Advisers at Harvard College.
