Research Interests


I am interested in the causes and correlates of externalizing behavioral disorders among children and adolescents, particularly intermittent explosive disorder (IED), which is new to the DSM5. I enjoy our labís research because of our focus on developmental psychopathology, our combined use of psychophysiology and behavioral measures, and our use of advanced statistical methods.

Research Interests

My research interests lie in identifying biological vulnerabilities (neural, physiological) and social risk factors that contribute to psychopathology in children and adolescents. I use psychophysiological methods as a means for bridging behavioral, psychological, and biological perspectives of mental health and illness. In my current research, I am investigating neural correlates of impulsivity and emotion regulation in pediatric bipolar disorder, depression, and non-suicidal self-injury using fMRI.
