Research Interests

My research interests lie in developmental psychobiology, with a focus on the organizing role of the maternal endocrine milieu on early human development spanning the prenatal to early childhood periods. With receipt of a NICHD K99 award, I’m evaluating the prediction of self-regulation capacity and executive functions at age 5 by maternal hormones during pregnancy. An upcoming study will extend this work to examine the functional significance of the hormonal transition associated with birth on infant reactivity and regulatory capacity, with a particular focus on the postnatal sex steroid surge observed in early infancy. more
