Based on my training in developmental and clinical psychology, I approach my courses and scholarly pursuits from a multi-disciplinary perspective. In my teaching, I encourage students to develop an understanding of both normal and atypical patterns of development. My research involves normative and clinical samples and is conducted in community (e.g., schools, clinics) and research lab settings. I enjoy collaborating with HWS students and developing cooperative partnerships with schools and other community organizations.
