BA Psychology, University of Notre Dame

Research Interests: My research interests focus mainly on understanding the processes through which marital conflict and family relationships impact children’s socioemotional development and adjustment into adolescence and adulthood. I am particularly interested in the development of psychopathology in children and adolescents and how family factors may contribute. Currently, I am focusing on learning more about prevention and intervention programs, including programs for new parents and for families that include individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities.

Mentor: Dr. E. Mark Cummings
