Research Activities

In my lab, we are interested in examining linkages between genes, temperament, cognition, and mood disorders within a developmental psychopathology framework. Our research on this issue includes children and adults, as well as clinical and non-clinical samples, with an emphasis on longitudinal designs and multimethod assessment strategies. We strive to take a “top-down” approach to depression vulnerability, incorporating both biological and contextual variables in our projects, and to use developmentally sensitive measures of behavior. Current projects include a SSHRC-funded study of the associations between child emotional behavior and cognitive vulnerability to depression and anxiety, and a study of gene-environment interactions and cortisol reactivity in predicting childhood emotional development (funded by CIHR).
