I received my B.A. in Psychology (Boston College), Master’s Degrees in Counseling and Psychology, and a Ph.D. in Developmental Science (all graduate degrees at Boston University). I was then a postdoctoral trainee at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and from 2011-2017 an Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of Texas at Arlington. I am broadly interested in child temperament, emotion, cognition, education and health. Much of my work incorporates genetic and/or biological approaches. For the past decade, I have been studying the development of child self-control from a multi-method, multi-theoretical perspective. In 2012, I began the TEXAS Family Study (TFS) with 200 preschool-aged siblings and their families, focusing on child self-control, socio-emotional development, and psychopathology, and several parent/family traits. Recently, we began studying the TFS children as they transition to school. At Texas A&M, I am an Associate Professor, Ph.D. Program Coordinator in Developmental Sciences (DS), Division Chair in Learning Sciences (LS) and Associate Department Head for Research and Faculty Development in the Educational Psychology Department (EPSY). My current research program includes the TFS and a multi-method study of self-control and related traits in three-year-olds that incorporates behavioral, emotional, cognitive and neurophysiological measures with colleagues in ESPY and Psychology (The Early Self-Control Development and School Readiness Study; SCD Study). We are currently working on expanding this study to include additional participants and longitudinal data collections that span early childhood through school age.
