Research Interests:

My general research interests are in the areas of children’s socio-emotional functioning and developmental psychopathology. In particular, I am interested in the development of shyness, social withdrawal, and social anxiety in childhood. My most recent research projects have focused on the “costs and benefits of solitude” in childhood, the challenges faced by shy and anxious children at school, and the meaning and implications of shyness and social withdrawal across different cultures.
