As a prevention scientist, to apply my knowledge of the social and emotional dynamics of educational settings to create interventions that enhance teachers' capacity to provide a supportive and engaging social and emotional context for academic learning. This involves conducting evaluative, efficacy, effectiveness, and dissemination research to determine whether these intervention efforts are effective and sustainable in educational settings. My basic research centers on the development of wisdom, social and emotional competence, mindful awareness, and resilience across the lifespan and its relationship to healthy adaptation.
