Development and Psychopathology (DAP) Lab

The mission of the DAP lab is to conduct research that can help foster healthy development in children and families from diverse sociodemographic backgrounds. Guided by the notion that development is best informed by studying pathways that lead to both adaptation and maladaptation, our research examines risk and protective processes in typically- and atypically-developing youth and their families using a theoretically-driven, multi-level, multi-method assessment (physiological, behavioral, neurological, ecological momentary assessment) approach.
