Theresa is a graduate student in the developmental psychology program at the University of Oregon. Her current research examines the role of social context in adolescent risk decisions and developmental changes in self-evaluation. Her previous work focused on the development of prosocial emotions in bicultural adolescents. She is broadly interested in how environmental factors affect neurobiological development in the social and affective domain. A former middle and high school teacher, she is also interested in the implications of such research for education.
