Research interests include learning more about how to successfully develop self-regulatory and school readiness skills in preschool aged children. More specifically, she is interested in how childcare contexts can support the successful development of these skills in children with elevated levels of problem behaviors. Additionally, she is interested in learning how early childhood education classrooms can support and foster the teacher-child relationship, particularly for those children perceived as having problem behaviors.
