I am an Assistant Professor in the Wayne State Department of Psychology (Developmental Science area) and an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Merrill Palmer Skillman Institute for Child & Family Development. My research examines adolescent social-emotional development and health across diverse contexts. I am especially interested in understanding when and how youth adjust when faced with interpersonal stressors, such as bullying, discrimination, and dating violence. In my research, I use a range of different methods, including but not limited to school-based surveys, daily diaries, and ambulatory physiological monitoring, to understand short- and long-term links between adolescents' social experiences and well-being. Most of my research takes place outside of the lab and in youth's everyday environments in order to capture adolescent "life as it's lived." The ultimate goal of this research is to shed light on potential intervention approaches and social policies that can promote healthy relationships and positive adjustment among youth.
