Research interests

Research Expertise: 
Adolescence and Emerging Adulthood | Romantic Relationships | Dating Violence Prevention | Sexual Risk Prevention

The focus of my research is on risk behaviors that occur within young people’s romantic relationships and make them vulnerable to dating violence, sexual assault, unintended pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and HIV. I use a mixed-methods approach to inform the development of prevention interventions for at-risk young people, currently focusing on young mothers and college student-athletes. Related interests include attachment theory, health risk behaviors, health disparities and healthcare engagement, and mental health.
