Summary

My research interests focus on exploring relationships between chronic pediatric conditions (type 1 diabetes, obesity) and internalizing symptoms (depression, anxiety). I am interested in investigating assessments for depression in type 1 diabetes, developing and disseminating interventions for internalizing disorders, and incorporating physical activity into treatments for depression.
