I am interested in the association between risky family environments and mental and physical health outcomes. More specifically, I am interested in the mechanisms by which exposure to a risky family during childhood and adolescence leads to adverse mental and physical health outcomes later in life. For example, I am currently investigating links between children’s self-reported daily mood and stressful events and their diurnal cortisol rhythms. I am also interested in exploring how parent-child interactions and marital quality may influence cortisol regulation in children.
