I’m interested in improving our understanding of risk factors that predispose adolescents to developing depressive and anxiety disorders. Developing knowledge of these factors may then allow us to develop personalized preventive interventions that reduce risk of depression in the short- and long-term. I’m also interested in how personality factors may reduce or increase risk of depression and anxiety.
