I am interested in the development of evidence-based interventions for externalizing behaviors, such as aggression and oppositional defiance. Particularly, I am interested in investigating the family system and examining the influence of parenting that may maintain these maladaptive behaviors from childhood to adulthood. Additionally, I am also interested in the role of emotion regulation in the development of externalizing behaviors. Other research interests include investigating the effectiveness of family- and school-based interventions as well as the dissemination of culturally sensitive interventions.
