- Abnormal Psychology, Psychopathology
- Clinical Psychology
My research program focuses mainly on examining the cognitive causes, correlates, and origins of depression. Understanding anxiety-linked processes has also been the aim of some of my research. The current focus of much of my research program is on understanding the cognitive features of high-risk individuals. This research primarily examines the cognitive mechanisms of risk in adults, but also assesses processes linked to the possible developmental origins of cognitive risk. Specific projects have assessed information processing under conditions thought to elicit vulnerability, and have also examined the early experiences of vulnerable individuals that might predispose them to risk for later depression.
