My primary research interest is in social perception and emotion regulation in children and young adults. By integrating data from multiple psychophysiological tools, the aim of my research is to develop more refined models of social perception relative to continuous measures of psychopathology. Specifically, I am interested in using eye tracking to study how we detect self-directed gaze and how this ability relates to brain activity, physiological arousal, and behavioral measures.
