My research and teaching focuses on understanding factors and processes associated with positive adjustment and outcomes among students with disabilities who are exposed to high levels of stress. I am particularly interested in implementing and evaluating school-based programs/practices that enhance social supports and social relationships in the lives of students with disabilities from high-poverty backgrounds.

I am ALWAYS interested in working with undergraduate or graduate students who share my interest in supporting high-need children and youth so please feel free to contact me if you would like to work on a research project together!
