My research interests are under the umbrella of social and cognitive development. I'm fascinated with understanding the mechanisms of friendship formation and dissolutions, as well as the behavioral and emotional responses that take place (i.e. friendship jealousy, bullying, and relational aggression). Additionally, mental health and the factors involved in stigma such as controllability beliefs, personal responsibility judgments, and socioeconomic status. My newest research endeavor is combining these two areas of interest to address mental health stigma in friendships and the role social media plays.
