Research Interests: Parent-child interactions with special interest in adolescent outcomes, inspired by undergraduate experiences working with internationally adopted children and their families. Master's thesis examined earlier parenting behaviors (i.e., warmth and intrusiveness) and the moderator of later parental monitoring to predict oppositional outcomes in middle childhood. Current research interests are focused on examining the nature of parent adolescent conflict and how this relates to development of adolescent interpersonal relationships. Additionally, how adolescent cognitions and attributions contribute to this association.

Research Interests: Areas of major interest concentrate on the following: To better understand how psychobiological dysregulation impacts the development of self-regulation throughout childhood and adolescence as well as understand how it predicts outcomes of later psychopathology. Second, to better grasp and elaborate on how caregiving and social environments (parents, family, siblings, and peers) affect the development of emotional regulation in children. Third, to ultimately identify and understand how the study of developmental change points to processes of resilience; and how these processes may illuminate ways to guide developmental pathways toward adaptive outcomes.
