Research Interests:

My principal research interests are the relations between emotional competence, social behavior and school readiness. Following Denham (1986, 1990) I am trying to demonstrate that emotional understanding (i.e., recognizing and labeling emotion states, stating appropriate causes of emotion states, understanding how emotion motivates behavior in the self and others) will predict social behavior and peer acceptance and is also an important influence to school readiness. I am currently developing models testing several domains associated with school readiness, their cross-domains associations, and possible mediating pathways among emotional, social and cognitive functioning.
