Research Interests:

My research primarily examines mental health (depression, anxiety) and substance use (alcohol, cannabis, tobacco, and other drugs) in adolescence and the transition to adulthood. Current studies with collaborators include: (1) evaluating the developmental course of substance use from late childhood to the mid-twenties, comparing people with and without childhood histories of ADHD; (2) the intersection of self-control, mental health, and alcohol use in undergraduate students; (3) contexts that impact well-being in adolescence and the transition to university, particularly parent involvement and smartphones/social media.

I am also actively engaged in research and pedagogical work on quantitative methods for developmental and clinical research. Recent projects examined data visualization strategies and participant compliance with ecological momentary assessment protocols.
