Interests: Biological, Social-Emotional, Heath & Mental Health, Family, Cognition
Life Phases: Infancy, Early Childhood
I am interested in exploring development of resilience factors in the context of stress and adversity in early childhood, with a multidimensional approach considering bio-behavioral connections, interpersonal relationships, and the interaction between individuals and the environment. Other research interests include trauma, creativity, and positive psychology.
