Research Overview

My primary research interests focus on attentional engagement and processing of suicide-related information and how these processes may indicate individuals' move from suicidal thoughts to suicidal behavior. In addition, I am interested in how sleep disturbance and nonsuicidal self-injury confer risk for suicide attempts.
