My research examines bio-behavioral development from before birth through early childhood. My research focuses on pathways of risk or resilience for psychopathology in children (autism, depression, sleep), effects of prenatal exposures, infant mental health, preterm infant development, and sleep development.
I was originally trained as a nurse and hold board-certification as a clinical nurse specialist in child and family psychiatry. I obtained my BA in Neuroscience from Clark University and earned my doctorate at the University of Connecticut in Biobehavioral Sciences/Developmental Psychobiology. I completed my postdoctoral research fellowship in the Department of Psychiatry and Human Behavior at Brown Medical School. My current research and clinical interests include neurobehavioral development, fetal and infant development, sleep development and disorders, perinatal and infant mental health, prenatal exposures, autism, and child psychopathology. I am currently conducting research on fetal and infant neurobehavioral development in relation to maternal depression and antidepressant treatment during pregnancy.
