Areas of Clinical Interest


Emotion Dysregulation in Childhood and Adolescence

Research Interests


Development and Neural Correlates of Emotion Dysregulation
My research focuses on the developmental course of dysregulation in both negative affect (irritability) and positive affect (excitability), understanding how these impact the development of psychopathology and may be targeted for treatment. I utilize functional MR imaging to assess brain activations related to excitability and irritability.
