Research Interests: I am interested in the development of mental health problems in youth. Specifically, I am interested in how family and peers influence youth mental health and whether it is possible to leverage these relationships to promote positive development. I am also interested in interventions to prevent domestic violence and help survivors heal from their experiences with violence.
