I am interested in how adverse experiences and contexts shape the development of cognition-emotion interactions and emotion regulation; specifically, how children’s experiences and environment impact the way they attend and react to emotional information, and how they then understand and regulate their emotions. I aim to shed light on how such reciprocal interactions between an individual’s cognition, emotion, and environment may confer risk for, or resiliency to, the development of psychopathology, and ultimately, how we may leverage this knowledge to inform targeted interventions and policy to improve children’s wellbeing.
