Personal profile

Research interests

My program of research focuses on improving the psychiatric outcomes of at-risk infants through understanding the underlying neural mechanisms of social-emotional development and psychopathology and the impact of adverse exposures and resilience factors on these mechanisms. I am the co-director of the multidisciplinary Washington University Neonatal Development Research group which conducts multi-modal neonatal neuroimaging and longitudinal follow-up studies with high retention rates of sociodemographically-diverse cohorts with elevated rates of exposure to adversity. My work also involves studying the role of prenatal exposures to poverty, stress, and drugs of misuse as well as preterm birth on neonatal brain development and subsequent child developmental outcomes.
