My primary research interests focus on the causes and consequences of attention and disruptive behavior disorders in children. I am also interested in early interventions for young children, parenting, and diversity factors. I am currently extending my research training in assessment tool development and examining the development of psychopathology in the context of trauma and grief, and multi-level risk factors (e.g., acute trauma, bullying, community violence). I am also interested in implementing advanced statistical methods for analyzing longitudinal data (i.e., Hierarchical Linear Modeling and Structural Equation Modeling) to better understand dynamic developmental processes.
