My research focuses on the development, assessment, and treatment of antisocial behavior and other types of externalizing problems in adolescence. I am particularly interested in applying research on normative and atypical development to issues with legal and social policy implications, and my current work examines adolescent development in the context of juvenile justice policy and practice. My recent work has examined developmental trajectories among delinquent populations, factors associated with female offending, and maturity of judgment as it develops during the course of adolescence (in both delinquent and non-delinquent populations). I have been especially interested in the relation between maturity of judgment and legal standards regarding autonomy, competence, accountability, and amenability to treatment.
