Research Interests

I am a clinical psychologist who works with children and families. My area of research interest is in prevention of child maltreatment and promotion of nurturing early care environments for young children. Child maltreatment is an enormous public health problem that has detrimental impacts on children’s psychosocial and physical health outcomes. Intervention that prevents maltreatment can help families and communities create environments that promote children’s health and well-being and their ability to grow to be healthy, happy, and productive adults. Thus far, I have examined the impact of community programs, such as Early Head Start, that seek to strengthen families against various risk factors that increase the likelihood of occurrence of child maltreatment.
