My research interests center on the interplay of normal and abnormal development, especially across adolescence and the transition to young adult life. I am specifically interested in relations between competence (e.g., academic success, social relationships, and work success) and broad dimensions of psychopathology (e.g., internalizing and externalizing problems). Consistent with a developmental psychopathology perspective, my research emphasizes the interplay of multiple risk factors at multiple levels of analysis, and processes related to both resilience (positive adaptation despite adversity) as well as more maladaptive outcomes.
Students who have a good fit with our lab often have strong interests in developmental psychopathology and statistics / data analysis.
Research in the Burt laboratory examines processes of risk and resilience in adolescence and the transition to adulthood.
