Areas of Interest

My research aims to better understand the development of risk and resilience in children and families, particularly the development of child psychopathology and antisocial behaviors (e.g., aggression, violence, rule-breaking). Much of this work focuses on families living in poverty or with fewer resources in order to understand how children succeed or struggle in the face of adversity.

Specific areas of research include:

- How experience shapes brain development

- How antisocial behavior and callous-unemotional traits develop from the preschool period into adolescence and early adulthood

- The role parenting and neighborhoods play on child and family development

- Understanding how nature and nurture interact over time to influence development

- The neural correlates of psychopathology, antisocial behavior, and psychopathy
