My previous research focused on a cohort of extremely low birth weight survivors, where I investigated the moderating influence of salivary cortisol and heart rate on the relation between prematurity and internalizing problems in adulthood. I plan to combine my past research experience in psychophysiology with my new lab’s direction in infant pain development.
