Lab: Family Relationships & Adolescent Development Lab
My research interests focus on family relationships during adolescence and how multiple relationships impact one another as well as how they impact the adolescent's development. My current areas of interest are: the content of siblings' conflicts during adolescence and how they impact relationship quality and individual adjustment, the impact of sibling relationships and sibling ordinal status on adolescent autonomy, and interaction and communication differences between multiple parent-child dyads within the same family.
Outside of the research lab and classroom, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two sons. We are big fans of Mizzou Tiger athletics as both my husband and I are undergraduate alumni of this institution. I am very happy to be back at MU as a faculty member and glad to call Columbia home.
