My primary research interests focus on parenting, parent-child relationships, and early normative and atypical development from a biopsychosocial developmental perspective. These topics include:

Dr. Roger Mills-Koonce
  1. The contextual, relational, psychological, and biological factors influencing parental sensitivity and harshness in early childhood,
  2. The familial and biological predictors of emotional and regulatory development in early childhood, and how these processes support adaptive and maladaptive behaviors over time,
  3. The emergence of early onset conduct problems, oppositional defiance behaviors, and callous-unemotional behaviors in children, and
  4. The transition to parenthood among same-sex couples and risk and resiliency in families headed by lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender parents.
