My research interests include children’s early socioemotional development, child-parent attachment relationships, parental sensitivity, contextual influences within families (e.g., interparental conflict resolution strategies) and their relations to family subsystems. My current work explores child-parent attachment relationships in the context of interparental conflict strategies, and the potential spillover of interparental conflict into child-parent relationships.
