Dr. Suor’s program of research broadly focuses on elucidating the multilevel processes (e.g., socioeconomic, parenting, neurocognitive, psychophysiological) that shape self-regulation and mental health outcomes across child and adolescent development. The goal of her work is to further clarify parenting and biological mechanisms that can be targeted and modified by preventive interventions in order to reduce mental health risk in children living in stressful environments.
