Research Overview

Broadly my research focus is on the individual- and family-level processes during childhood that result in normal versus abnormal development. More specifically, I am interested in how environmental stressors interact with individual differences to affect emotion regulation and attachment security, and how dysfunctions in regulation and security result in psychopathology.
