The Child Affect & Behavior Lab
Department of Psychology
University of Miami
Welcome! Thanks for visiting our site.
I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Miami. My research focuses on irritability and aggressive behavior in children and adolescents, including interests in developmental processes, assessment, and intervention.
I earned my Ph.D. in Clinical Child Psychology at the University of Kansas, where I worked with Paula Fite and Michael Roberts. I completed my predoctoral internship at the Medical University of South Carolina, followed by a postdoctoral fellowship with John Weisz at Harvard University. For years, I worked with the World Health Organization in their development of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11) Mental and Behavioural Disorders. These activities and others have generated several rich datasets and strong, active collaborations.
Our Child Affect & Behavior Lab (CAB Lab) is affiliated with the Child Division and the Clinical Program in the Department of Psychology. If you are interested in working with us, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
I do plan to admit a doctoral student in Fall 2022. Our clinical program will not be requiring (or considering) GRE scores in the admissions process. For more information, see
