Graduate Student, Human Development and Family Studies (Affiliate)
Broadly, I study adolescent risk-taking and resilience within the context of the family. More specifically, I am interested in the ways that families shape and are shaped by adolescent substance use, with an eye towards understanding self regulatory capacities during the adolescent years. As a graduate assistant, I work as an independent contractor for the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center, assisting with Dr. Christine Ohannessian’s Adolescent Adjustment Project. As an InChip Graduate Student Affiliate, I hope to pursue mixed methods research examining the role of the family in shaping emotion regulation during adolescence.
