My primary research interest is the developmental psychopathology of depression in adolescence. Recently, my research has focused on understanding the emergence of gender differences in depression, specifically why the rates of depression double for girls but remain stable or drop for boys during early adolescence. I am investigating how gender roles, self-discrepancy, and stress and coping affect adolescent girls' vulnerability to depression. In addition, I have interests in the development of self-regulation, gender roles and eating disorders.
