About the author:

My research focuses on relationships in adoptive families and on identity development in adolescents and young adults. More broadly, I am interested in intersections between child and adolescent development and family dynamics.

What I want to achieve:

The goal of my work and that of the Rudd Adoption Research Program is for policy and practice in adoption and foster care to be informed by sound scientific evidence and sensitivity to individual differences and cultural contexts.
