Research Interests

My work focuses on biopsychosocial mechanisms in the development of youth emotion dysregulation and related outcomes (e.g., depression, suicide). I am especially interested in understanding the costs, benefits, and foundations--social and biological--of emotion awareness. My work draws on theories of embodied emotion and interoception (upward body-to-brain communication) and integrates multiple methodologies (behavioral, psycholinguistic, biological) to measure emotion experience and the social and biological processes informing it.
