Research Overview

Dr. Chloe Hamza's research program focuses on the development of mental health concerns in adolescence and emerging adulthood (particularly self-injurious behaviors). A major focus of her research is on identifying developmentally relevant risk and protective factors that predict stability and change in self-injurious behaviors over time. She is also interested in examining developmental processes (e.g., mediating factors), and uses a variety of methodological approaches in her research (e.g., longitudinal, experimental, experience sampling).
