Research Interests:

I am an emotion researcher who seeks to better understand predictors of child psychopathology, specifically anxiety and depression, through the analysis of important socialization agents (e.g., parents and peers). I am interested in examining these pathways through both behavioral and physiological forms of assessment. Further, I am pursuing a quantitative minor into order to better apply advanced statistical techniques to answer these questions.
