Andrea is a second year doctoral student in the Clinical Psychology program at the University of Oregon, working under the mentorship of Dr. Phil Fisher. 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, Andrea is exploring how parent-child interactions influence child language development. She is currently a part of the FIND evaluation team, specifically focused on developing better video-coding instruments to measure parent-child interactions. She hopes to extend this work to investigate child language, evaluating how increased "serve and return" interactions may influence children's receptive and expressive language development.
