Adolescent Development, Developmental Psychopathology, Emotion Regulation, Cognitive Control, Family Environments, Neural Mechanisms
The focus of my research is to examine how a confluence of factors, such as parent characteristics, adversity, and temperamental traits all contribute to the development of emotion regulation and cognitive control during adolescence. Using fMRI, I also study how these behavioral processes unfold at the neural level, and whether individual differences in neural activity during emotion regulation can predict risk for psychopathology.
