Discipline/Expertise:My first specialty is in childhood anxiety disorders, with a focus on how children acquire and reduce fear. This can contribute to our understanding of treatment as well as causes for early onset anxiety disorders. In addition, I'm also interested in parenting factors that affect childhood anxiety as well as parenting well-being.

My second research specialty is the gender bias in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) professions. Specifically, I'm interested in the causal factors that reduces the involvement of girls and women in STEM professions.
