Research Interests: I’m interested in decision-making processes of justice-involved youth. Specifically, how delay of gratification and impulsivity characteristics may relate to these processes and risk-taking behaviors. I’m interested in studying how these factors evolve as dynamic factors, and how they relate to recidivism. I’m also interested how they may be used to inform assessment and intervention development, particularly risk assessment.
