Description of Research

Research focuses on individual differences and the ways in which they might moderate social behavior, in children, adolescents, and young adults using a multiple method approach (e.g., self-report, behavioral observations, EEG, and fMRI). Primary research interests focus on individual differences in aggression, victimization, and reactions to social pain. In addition, research focuses on the development of effortful control in children and individual differences in these self-regulatory behaviors.
