Broadly, my work focuses on the development of individual differences in cognition and motivation, and their consequences for health and well-being. Specifically, I focus on decision making under uncertainty, and social motivations during adolescence, as well as lifespan development of personality. A modeler at heart, I use sophisticated computational and statistical tools to understand the processes and structures underlying observed behavior in response to games and questionnaires. These tools include multi-level modeling, Bayesian modeling, structural equation modeling, machine learning, and network analysis. In many cases, I also relate behavior to physiological response (e.g., fMRI BOLD response).
