Broadly, I am interested in aggression, victimization, and friendships among adolescents.
My current research, supported by an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship, will contribute to knowledge about the positive and negative consequences of adolescents' enactment and receipt of defending for both the victims and the defenders of peer victimization.
