Research

Andrea is a third year doctoral student in the Clinical Psychology program at the University of Oregon, working under the mentorship of Drs. Phil Fisher and Caitlin Fausey. Her primary research focuses on understanding language development in the context of early life adversity. As a part of her work in the Stress Neurobiology and Prevention (SNAP) Lab and the UO Learning Lab, Andrea is exploring how parent-child interactions influence child language development. She is currently a part of the FIND evaluation team, specifically focused on using video-coding techniques to measure changes to the quality of caregiver-child interaction following the FIND intervention. This project also includes an assessment of child language outcomes, evaluating how increased "serve and return" interactions may influence children's receptive and expressive language development.
