I’m interested in the relations between biology, socialization, personality, emotion and self-regulation and how these relations change over time. I’m especially interested in the role that physiology plays in emotion and self-regulation. My dog is interested in chasing rabbits.

Currently, I am a beginning graduate student working at the CMB. Prior to joining the HERD lab, I worked in the areas of psychiatric neuroimaging and stress neuroendocrinology, with a primary focus on affective disorders. Current research effort is focused on examining ways in which stress affects affective decision making and evaluating impulsivity as an endophenotype potentiating risks for substance abuse.

I am interested in how parent factors, such as parents’ behavioral styles, interact with child temperament and physiological profiles to promote or hinder children’s adjustment in social, emotional, and academic domains. I am specifically interested how the physiological and behavioral responses of shy or inhibited children in the presence of social novelty are modified by parent behaviors.
