Research Overview

More generally, I am interested in the influence of family stress and marital conflict on children’s socio-emotional development. A significant part of my research direction consists of capturing family-level relationship dynamics within a process-oriented perspective. As one part of this research program, I am interested in understanding how instability in the family may undermine children’s functioning by compromising their sense of security and predictability in the family system. As the second part of this research program, I am interested in operationalizing and assessing complex functional constructs that are designed to capture relationship boundaries in the family system. Particularly, I am interested in how different patterns of broader family functioning during early childhood may alter the influence of interparental relationship dynamics on children’s development.
