My research addresses risk, resilience, and health during the course of development. The developmental psychopathology theoretical framework guides my work in two important ways:
- I explore factors that counteract risk for psychosocial and health problems in the course of development.
- My work is based on the assumption that individuals’ competencies and strengths are fundamental in understanding and intervening on compromises in health and mental health.
My current research examines the implications of technology use for adolescents’ and emerging adults’ health and well-being.
