CD/PSY 306 Adolescence
Broadly, my research takes a strengths-based approach to identifying contexts and individual characteristics that facilitate adaptive decision-making among youth through three lines of inquiry: (1) positive risk taking, (2) social and biological influences on decision-making, and (3) cross-national comparisons of behavior. To answer my research questions, I use advanced statistical modeling and methods including experimental tasks, ecological momentary assessments, fMRI, and hormone samples. As a scholar, I am committed to cultivating an equitable and inclusive academic environment and to ethical and transparent scientific practices.
