My research focuses on the impact of early life stress on psychological and behavioral development. In particular, my research examines the effects of bullying and maltreatment on young people’s mental health and wellbeing. My research integrates methods from social epidemiology, developmental psychology and behavioral genetics in order to understand the complex genetic and environmental influences that promote resilience to victimization and early life stress. The aim of this research is to guide intervention work by identifying protective factors that promote lifelong resilience.
