His research investigates social and biological influences on the development of self-regulation, with a focus on identifying factors underlying risk taking and antisocial behavior among adolescents. His work utilizes a variety of research methods to interrogate developmental phenomena, including neuroimaging, genetic epidemiology, and experimental social psychology. His goal is to produce knowledge that contributes to improved prevention of antisocial behavior, substance abuse, and other problems of self-regulation.
