Research Interests

I am interested in biobehavioral traits contributing to psychopathology, particularly callousness and disinhibition, and the ways they interact, change, and exert influence across development. Over the long term, I plan to utilize my research to inform early, biologically informed intervention in the development of antisocial behavior. My current research utilizes electrocortical response (event-related potentials), functional neuroimaging (fMRI), self-report measures, and other indicators including self-reported pain threshold/tolerance to develop our multi-domain understanding of core dispositional liabilities across childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. Current projects include development of a self-report callousness scale and examination of BOLD correlates, investigation of the influence of traits on brain responses during instructed emotion regulation, and structural modeling of multi-domain models involving callousness and empathy.
