Melissa is a second-year doctoral student in the clinical area and is advised by Dr. Nick Allen in the ADAPT Lab. She is currently working on projects examining the physiology of emotional reactivity and regulation in adolescents and cognitive control in adolescence. Melissa is extremely interested in how cognition and other factors contribute to risk for psychopathology in adolescence and emerging adulthood, as well as possible mechanisms for intervention, such as sleep improvement. In addition, Melissa is becoming increasingly fascinated with structural equation modeling techniques to analyze developmental data.
