The Child Affect & Behavior Lab
Department of Psychology
University of Miami
Welcome! Thanks for visiting my site.
I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Miami (starting January 2021). 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 lab will be affiliated with the Child Division and the Clinical Program in the Department. I look forward to working with current UM undergraduate and graduate students who may be interested in joining the lab in Spring 2021. I do plan to admit a Child Clinical Ph.D. student in Fall 2021. If you are interested in working with us, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
