My research aims to understand and quantify vulnerability to suicidal and self-injurious behavior in youth across distinct units of analysis (e.g., environmental circumstances, behavior, physiology). My ongoing projects focus on how individual differences in executive functioning, trait impulsivity, stressful life events (particularly peer rejection), reward responsiveness, and other variables may contribute to the escalation from suicidal thinking to action in adolescents and young adults.
