Research Interests

My research has centered upon three related and integrated themes: 1) basic research in developmental psychopathology focused on testing contextual, bio-behavioral, and cognitive-developmental models of emotional disorders, 2) improving the empirical utility of assessment and measurement techniques and 3) intervention and prevention of emotional difficulties. The focus of intervention and prevention has been to move the basic science of developmental psychopathology and measurement theory out of the lab and into real world applications such as developing clinical trials and prevention interventions for youth emotional difficulties and other related practical applications of knowledge.
