Academic Interests and Plans
The goal of my research is to inform our understanding of mental health problems in children, adolescents, and young adults. To that end, my research focuses on the associations among internalizing disorders (especially depression), externalizing disorders (especially conduct disorder), and substance dependence in youth. I address two related questions: (1) how are these forms of psychopathology associated with each other, both concurrently and longitudinally? (2) how are these disorders associated with family factors? Both lines of research have implications for our understanding of the basic nature of psychopathology and for prevention and treatment efforts.
