Megan is a doctoral student in the Clinical Science program at Florida International University (FIU) and a member of the Child and Family Well-Being Lab. Broadly, Megan is interested in examining parent and child factors influencing disease progression and response to treatment using a transdiagnostic approach. Specifically, she is interested in 1) focusing on parent psychopathology and parent-child interactions, 2) understanding the malleability of biomarkers following intervention, and 3) the biological underpinnings of emotion regulation.
