Her research focuses on translating empirical findings into prevention and intervention programming and she has secured six and half million dollars of external funding.  She just completed a CDC-funded study that included a randomized clinical trial of a social emotional learning prevention program in 36 middle schools to reduce aggression. National Institute of Justice (NIJ) is funding her to track these kids to examine whether these effects remain as kids navigate challenges of high school.  CDC is funding another RCT of this program in comparison to a gender-enhanced social-emotional program in 28 Illinois middle schools.  She just received a 5-year large grant to prevent bullying and promote school safety in high schools from NIJ. She authored a 2011 White House Brief on bullying among LGBTQ youth and attended the White House Conference in 2011.
