About Us

Our research focuses on how children's social experiences shape their mental and physical health. We use a variety of research methods to evaluate social and emotional functioning, including structured behavioral observations, clinical interviews, self-reports, and performance-based tasks. In addition, we incorporate a number of health assessments, including clinical health measures (e.g., blood pressure) and indices of cellular function.
