My research interests are in the role of emotional arousal and regulation in the development of substance use and psychopathology in adolescence. I am also interested in the role of the family in adolescent emotional development. My research incorporates multiple methods to study emotion, including self-report, observation, cardiovascular, neuroendocrine, and neuroimaging.
