    ​Broadly speaking, I am interested in attachment and resilience to early life trauma, specifically relational trauma and neglect. In particular, I am interested in children who have experienced institutional care and other forms of disrupted parenting. My research examines biological correlates (i.e. DNA Methylation) and developmental trajectories of children in the context of early-life adversity and interventions to strengthen parent-child relationships.
