My research broadly examines the expression and etiology of schizophrenia-spectrum psychopathology using a variety of methodological tools: psychometric assessment, semi-structured interviews, and experience sampling methodology. Specifically, I am interested in understanding the affective expression across the continuum of schizotypy and the role that dyregulated affect plays in the development of schizophrenia-spectrum disorders.
