Biography

My research mainly focuses on the psychological and physical health outcomes in adolescents who experience peer victimization (i.e., are bullied); specifically, I have looked at cellular aging and maladaptive coping mechanisms in this population. My other interests include parricide and the importance of friendships in adolescence, particularly those between females. I recently located to the Pacific Northwest from Texas (along with my husband and two cats) and look forward to seeing all the area has to offer.
