Research Interests

I’m interested in how peer-related processes (i.e. rejection, social media) contribute to the development of adolescent suicidal thoughts and behaviors. My research uses multimodal assessments, such as neuroimaging and ecological momentary assessment, to better understand the dynamics of adolescent suicidal thoughts and behaviors and peer experiences.
