Research Interests
My research involves risk for depression, with two foci: (1) the combined influence of rumination and maladaptive beliefs, and (2) models of life stress, including the stress sensitization, generation, and autonomy models. Additionally, I am interested in the application of SEM and HLM statistical techniques in psychopathology research.
