As a developmental psychopathologist, I focus on the many cascading risk factors (e.g., biogenetic, cognitive, familial, social) that contribute to the development of psychopathology. On the other hand, I place equal importance of the examination of resiliency: that is, why do some individuals manage to thrive in life despite being exposed to a multitude of serious risk factors?
I have scheduled office hours but I also leave my office door open over 50% of the time I am at EWU. Any and all students are free to drop in and chat-about any topic-anytime my door is open.
Outside of work I enjoy fencing (my #1 passion), any type of skiing, hiking, biking, and walking my two blue heelers.
