My research focuses on children’s and adolescents’ peer relationships (including peer rejection and acceptance, friendship, and small group interactions) as predictors of behavioral and academic outcomes. I have studied behavioral outcomes such as problem behavior and substance use. Academic outcomes of particular interest to me include academic performance and school persistence. I am also interested in other social factors (e.g., parents) that can influence child and adolescent development within the peer and academic contexts. My research questions revolve around the study of mediation, moderation, and bidirectional effects within a longitudinal perspective.
