    My research seeks to understand why young people think about and attempt suicide in a way that can inform assessment, treatment, and prevention of suicide risk. My lab's program of research has four broad goals: 1) to study the link between different forms of repetitive thinking, hopelessness, and suicidal ideation; 2) to understand what young people actually think about when they think about suicide, the form that these thoughts take, and whether there are subtypes of suicidal thoughts that can be used to predict who is likely to make a future suicide attempt; 3) to understand the interplay between culture and cognition in explaining risk for suicidal ideation and attempts; and 4) to identify laboratory-based methods of shifting the hopelessness-related cognitions that give rise to suicidal ideation.

    PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
