Research Interests

My research interests focus on understanding risk and protective factors of important developmental outcomes, including substance use, suicidal behavior and resilience (the ability to do well in spite of adversity). My recent projects examine the effects of sleep and self-regulation (regulation of affect, behavioral, and cognitive processes) on physical and mental health.
