My primary research aim is to investigate the developmental processes linking early childhood adversity with mental health outcomes and suicide-related behaviors amongst adolescents and young adults. This research is grounded in the developmental psychopathology perspective, with a multilevel systems approach in order to consider how biological and contextual processes influence socioemotional development.
