Research interests

The overarching aim of my research is to examine neurobiological mechanisms underlying attachment and parent-child relationships. This includes: 1) fundamental understanding of neurobiological processes underlying parent-child interactions, 2) correlates and consequences of traumatic attachment experiences, and 3) understanding of the role of childhood trauma in the development of psychopathology.
