Research/Career Interests: 

My research focuses on the development of self-regulation across the lifespan. 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.


I received my Ph.D. in Developmental and Quantitative Psychology from the University of Kansas. I then completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the Institute for Applied Research in Youth Development at Tufts University.
