The Puget Sound Youth in Context (PSYC) Lab studies how teens and young adults regulate their emotions and control their impulses, with a focus on alcohol and drug use. Our research seeks to understand how self-regulation works at the daily level, how our interactions with social and emotional contexts influence our ability to deploy our self-regulatory resources, how transactions with our environment shape our self-regulation over time, and how that development influences the development of emotional and behavioral problems.

We have a second line of research focusing on improving the use of statistical methods in the Psychological Sciences.
