Research Interests:

My research encompasses a broad interest in the relationship between personality and psychopathology, with a particular focus in the area of personality disorders.  To date, most of my work has investigated three primary targets of interest:

  1. Factors implicated in the etiology of personality disorders, such as the role that parenting styles/behaviors might play and the relationship between underlying personality traits and personality disorders,
  2. Issues related to assessment and treatment of personality disorders.  For example, a recent paper examined this topic by proposing a behavior analytic approach to the assessment and treatment of PDs, and
  3. The relationship between personality dimensions (e.g., impulsivity, FFM traits) and psychopathology (e.g., the autism spectrum, anxiety disorders, personality disorders).
