Research Interests

  • My research examines trajectories toward psychological well- and ill-being in adolescence and emerging adulthood. These pathways are illuminated in the context of developmental transition periods, such as puberty and school transitions (into middle school, high school, and college). I am also interested in gender issues, such as exploring the characteristics, contexts, and mechanisms that place adolescent girls and young women at elevated risk for internalizing problems, including depression, body image and eating disturbance, and anxiety. It is my hope that this program of research will inform family-, school-, and community-based interventions aimed at building resiliency in adolescents and emerging adults, in the face of normative and atypical developmental challenges.

Research Interests

  • I am interested in understanding how humans remember and reason.  My collaborators and I use a variety of tools including brain imaging (EEG/ERP), neuropsychology and computational modeling.  We also study these topics in young children and older adults as well as people with a variety of neurodegenerative diseases including Alzheimer’s disease, Frontotemporal Dementia and Mild Cognitive Impairment.
