Personal Statement:

My research has focused on exposure to stressful events, mental health, and health outcomes (e.g. sexual risk behavior, substance use) in women and adolescents. I have worked primarily with vulnerable populations, including women who have experienced violence and HIV positive adolescents. My goal is to understand mechanisms linking stressful life events, mental health, and poor health outcomes in vulnerable populations in order to develop and test evidence-based interventions to ameliorate the negative health effects of stressful life events. I also have a recent interest in social and behavioral factors influencing nutrition and physical activity and interventions to maximize health and wellbeing for women and adolescents.
