I am an NIMH Ruth L. Kirschstein NRSA Postdoctoral Fellow using naturalistic methods to study how we develop through social interactions. Particularly, I am interested in understanding the co-development of social attention, the mentalizing network and mentalizing behaviors and how this relates to positive social relationships and social anxiety risk.
