Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and related conduct problems (e.g., aggression) are highly prevalent, treatment resistant, and they uniquely predict poor adolescent and adult outcomes. My research focuses on identifying factors that predict the onset, maintenance, and long-term prognosis of children with these challenges.

Missing data are a pervasive research problem that cuts across a variety of substantive disciplines. For example, participants in a psychology study may refuse to answer specific questionnaire items, or patients in a longitudinal clinical trial may drop out prematurely. Applying unsophisticated analysis approaches (e.g., excluding cases with missing data) can bias estimates of associations among variables and reduce the sensitivity to detect treatment effects.
