My research interests span health, developmental, and clinical psychology, with the overarching aim of understanding how both individual difference, as well as social and community-related variables, are related to psychological, social, educational, and health-related outcomes across the life-span. I am particularly interested in individual differences in cognitive and self-regulatory processes (such as appraisal, coping, and emotion regulation) and their potential links with emotional vulnerability. I am an Academic Editor at PeerJ and an Editorial Board Member at Vulnerable Children and Youth Studies.
I am currently conducting research in three broad areas:
1) Mental health and well-being among children with language and literacy difficulties
2) Emotional experience, emotion regulation, and non-suicidal self-injury
3) Psychosocial impacts of HIV/AIDS
Please contact me if you would be interested in conducting PhD research in any areas that overlap with my interests.
