Research Overview

My research interests broadly pertain to how risk factors, such as stress and trauma, during early childhood, effect long-term healthy development, and how we can improve and make available early intervention programs to counteract negative outcomes. Currently, I am involved in a clinical trial investigating the treatment and prevention of mood disorders in a disadvantaged, adolescent population, with or without a history of maltreatment.
