Curriculum Vitae

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.
