Research interests:

My previous work as graduate student aimed at investigating underlying mechanisms in the association between peer victimization in youth, depressive symptoms, and suicidal ideation in adolescence and adulthood. My postdoctoral work now focuses on understanding how comorbid mental and physical disorders in youth may impact risks of suicide and non-suicide mortality in adulthood.
