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.

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 lab’s 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

I am interested in the use of psychophysiological, behavioral, and neuroimaging methods to better understand psychopathology across development in children and adolescents. My current research focuses on the relationships between psychophysiology, parent-child interactions, and externalizing behaviors.

Research Interests

My research interests lie primarily in biological vulnerabilities to and social risk factors for development of self-injury among adolescent girls. In the future, I would like to take part in developing preventive interventions that reduce the likelihood that vulnerable girls will develop future self-injury.

Research Interests


I am interested in intersections among neuroscience, quantitative psychology, and clinical psychology. I use computational modeling in combination with neuroimaging techniques such as fMRI to better understand neural mechanisms underlying addiction and reward processing. My goal is to create objective test measures that can supplement current clinical diagnostic tools, eventually leading to more effective, individualized treatment plans.
