Biography

My research investigates models to explain the development of depression and anxiety using designs that rely on developmental psychopathology principles and integrate psychophysiological, developmental, and behavior genetics methodologies.  I am especially interested in identifying factors that protect high-risk children, such as offspring of depressed parents, from developing social and emotional problems.  Our current lab studies focus on emotion processing and empathy-related constructs as potential risk and protective factors.
