Dr. Groh is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychological Sciences and Director of the Family & Child Development Lab. Research in the lab focuses on the developmental origins of the quality of parent-child relationships and the legacy of these relationships for developmental (mal)adjustment. Current projects in the lab supported by NSF and NIH examine the neural mechanisms by which parent-child relationships are transmitted across generations. Specifically, this work is aimed at identifying psychological factors (e.g., attachment insecurity, depression) that pose risk to women’s neural adaptation to motherhood, including a focus on both mother (e.g., parenting) and child (e.g., attachment insecurity, behavioral problems) outcomes among families from diverse ethnic/racial backgrounds.
