My research focuses on the development of affective disorders in
childhood and adolescence, emphasizing the high comorbidity between depression
and generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). Recently, I have become interested in
rumination, a pattern of negative unproductive thought, which is considered a
transdiagnostic (common) factor across disorders. I am currently pursuing two
lines of research on affective disorders in adolescents: (1) utilizing
assessment studies to further develop an understanding of transdiagnostic
features (e.g., rumination) that contribute to the development and maintenance
of anxiety and depression, and (2) developing clinical interventions to target common
factors across anxiety and depression.
