Research Interests

Laura is interested in the onset and presentation of internalizing and externalizing disorders in youth, and comorbidities between the two. She is interested in family-based interventions, as well as adaptations of existing evidence-based treatments that broaden applicability and meet a wider range of child and family mental health care needs. She is particularly excited about the potential for leveraging technology to increase the scope of treatment to traditionally underserved areas.
