Academic interests: 

My research focuses on the development of self-regulation across the lifespan and the relationship between intentional self-regulation and positive developmental outcomes (especially Positive Youth Development). My long-term goal is to couple a nuanced understanding of self-regulation and thriving with applied interventions. 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.

Biography

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.
