I study risk and resilience among youth, especially those who have experienced adverse circumstances such as poverty, maltreatment, or trauma. Through the frameworks of evolutionary developmental psychology as well as developmental psychopathology with a focus on neurocognitive development, I aim to discern the pathways and prevention surrounding at-risk youth and families. 

Job Description

Landry is a 4th-year doctoral student in Neuroscience. Her research focuses on adolescent adversity and neural development, specifically related to how low socioeconomic status, neighborhood risk, and parenting lead to neurocognitive underpinnings of risk behaviors such as delinquency, psychopathy, and substance use. 

Interesting fact: Landry enjoys rock climbing, running, and playing D&D with her friends. She and her husband share their home with their tail-less cat, Nubby.
