Research Summary:
I have broad interests in the developmental psychopathology of adolescent anxiety and depression. More specifically, I am interested the the stress generation hypothesis. This hypothesis suggests that cognitive and interpersonal styles of those who experience depression often contribute to additional life stressors. My research seeks to understand the extent to which the stress generation hypothesis can be extended to anxiety and anxiety disorders.
