Research Expertise: 
Schizophrenia-spectrum disorders | Individual differences | Health and lifestyle

My research focuses on schizophrenia and the schizophrenia-spectrum disorders. I am interested in understanding the individual risk factors that contribute to the development (or exacerbation) of schizophrenia-related disorders. Over the last several years my lab has specifically examined neurocognitive functioning, personality factors, social/interpersonal functioning, & lifestyle behaviors. Recent research has included outpatients with schizophrenia and high-risk samples (e.g. college students with high levels of schizotypy). I am also interested in the relationship between health behaviors (e.g., substance use, stress management, exercise & nutrition) and outcomes in those with schizophrenia-spectrum conditions.

Recent Academic Projects: 
Current projects include the examination of schizophrenia-spectrum indicators and 1) parental education and income and early life experiences on levels of physical activity and nutrition patterns, 2) the contribution of cognitive and emotional factors in the development of delusional ideation, 3) internet and technology usage related to wellbeing and social functioning, 4) individual differences in physiological response (EEG, blood pressure/heart rate) during visual change detection task. We are also in the process of finalizing a 7-year longitudinal project examining the prediction of academic functioning among college students with varying levels of schizotypy.
