Research Interests: 
A child clinical-community psychologist, my interests center around children and families and: (a) factors influencing the development of children at-risk for emotional, behavioral, and/or academic difficulties, particularly risk and resilience and youngsters’ adjustment to trauma; and (b) the use of evaluation research to guide system change, program refinement, service delivery, and policy.  My current primary effort involves a multi-year partnership with our local school system’s pre-kindergarten program and office of research, analytics, and evaluation. We are working to increase their capacity to collect, manage, and use data to better support teacher coaching, teacher differentiated instruction, teacher curricula implementation, and research capacity.
