My research interests are centered around parent-child relationships. Specifically, I am interested in researching how various parent practices influence child stress reactivity throughout the developmental transition from childhood to adolescence. Furthermore, I am interested in research pertaining to parent practices, and which of these practices can be promotive or protective for child socioemotional development.

Current Research

I am currently working under the supervision of Dr. Kalsea Koss. The research I am utilizing in this lab is from the Fragile Families Project. This project is a longitudinal study that investigates the development of low-income families. This project utilizes a diverse sample, and investigates familial dyads to determine how placement in a risky environment can influence developmental trajectories.
