Using a developmental psychopathology framework, my research interests are primarily concerned with the various risk and protective factors associated with parenting as it relates to both internalizing and externalizing disorders in children and adolescents. Additionally, I am interested in understanding the role of the family as a developmental context for peer difficulties, such as victimization.
