Short Bio
My research focuses on advancing personality, mood, and clinical assessment, with an emphasis on improving the diagnosis of externalizing forms of psychopathology (e.g., narcissism, psychopathy, ADHD) and hypomania/mania. I also am interested in studying the extent to which externalizing traits (e.g., social boldness, antagonism) are adaptive versus maladaptive across different contexts, can be validly assessed using different methods (e.g., self-report, informant, interview), and are amenable to change. The long-term goal of my research is to provide more valid and efficient personality and psychopathology assessment in research and applied settings in order to streamline and improve intervention efforts.
