I examine biopsychosocial processes that contribute to social-emotional development in children and adolescents. In particular, I study factors that contribute to positive family functioning, competence, and resiliency in vulnerable or understudied families. I also focus on processes that contribute to the development of dispositional traits, such as ego-resiliency, dispositional optimism, effortful control and empathy that are in turn associated with adjustment and positive behaviors.
