My research focuses on parent-child interactions. I am particularly interested in how parents’ think about children’s behavior and how these thoughts relate to how parents and children interact. The goal of the research is to understand and improve parent-child interactions and child outcomes. The research addresses questions of parenting and parent cognitions across both families of typically-developing children and families coping with the challenges of disorders such as Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder.


I am no longer accepting graduate students.
