Research Interests

My program of research examines both suicidal and non-suicidal self-injurious thoughts and behaviors. I am particularly interested in identifying novel risk factors for suicide, such as the analysis of speech features, using ecological momentary assessment (EMA) and other smartphone-delivered technologies. In addition, I am interested in identifying subgroups of individuals who experience suicidal thoughts and behaviors, and the trajectory of these thoughts and behaviors over time, in order to improve the prediction and treatment of self-injury.
