Research Interests

My research explores the impact of parent-child relationships on youth well-being in adolescence and early adulthood. Specifically, my work emphasizes the importance of parental involvement on the development of child and adolescent adjustment (e.g., internalizing and externalizing behaviors) and health-related behaviors (e.g., substance use), how different parenting figures (e.g., mothers vs. fathers) influence youth development, and how parental involvement differs across contexts for marginalized youth. My current research agenda is focused on building more comprehensive and inclusive models of positive parental involvement to promote adaptive adolescent and young adult adjustment and health. I have also collaborated with researchers on projects beyond these topic areas due to my expertise in applied longitudinal quantitative methodology and structural equation modeling.
