Factors moderating trajectories of youth aggression in a context of political violence.” She joined UNCG in Fall 2013 as an assistant professor in the Department of Peace and Conflict Studies. Her research applies a risk and resilience framework to examine the impact of political violence on children, families and communities in Colombia, Croatia and Northern Ireland. She is expanding this international research to work with immigrant and refugee youth in the United States.
