RESEARCH INTERESTS

- children's aggressive behaviour
- social competence
- social cognition
- social information-processing
- peer relations
- friendship

My research interests centre around the study of children's aggression. In broad terms, I am interested in identifying social factors that contribute to continuities and discontinuities in aggressive and antisocial behaviour, with a particular emphasis on underlying social-cognitive mechanisms. The ultimate objective of this research is to delineate critical developmental pathways that might be amenable to intervention. Currently, I am investigating differences in the qualitative features of aggressive and nonaggressive children's friendships. Another line of my research concerns the effects of friends' characteristics (e.g., aggressiveness) and friendship quality on aspects of social cognition, such as patterns of social information-processing and children's beliefs regarding the legitimacy of aggressive behaviour.
