Research Interests

My research focuses on the development of self-regulation across the life span. I am especially interested in the relationship between intentional self-regulation and positive development, and my long-term goal is to couple a nuanced understanding of self-regulation with applied interventions (e.g., parenting education programs). I am also interested in quantitative methodology, both as a research domain and as a tool for optimizing my empirical research. As a substantive topic, my quantitative research focuses on latent variable and multilevel modeling techniques.
