Graduate Student

Developmental Psychology
Tyler's current work explores the link between early adversity and later well-being using social contextual, longitudinal, clinical, and neuroimaging approaches. Her dissertation aims to parse the unique effects of qualitatively different adverse experiences, such as child neglect and exposure to intimate partner violence, on emotion- and reward-related brain development and risk of later depression and anxiety.

My current project examines how lifetime experiences with racial discrimination, a form of chronic stress, alter brain development and function in Black youth.  I am hypothesizing that these brain disruptions support the emergence of depressive symptoms. However, because not everyone who experiences racial discrimination develops depressive symptoms, I am also interested in examining contextual protective factors.  In particular, I am studying how youth's ethnic identity buffers the brain from these negative mental health outcomes.

Leigh is interested in studying structural and functional neural connectivity related to emotion and reward processing in adolescents. She is also interested in understanding how contextual factors, such as childhood exposure to poverty, affects the development of neural connectivity.
