Dr. Nicole E. Lorenzo is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Maryland, College Park and completed her Ph.D. in Clinical Science at Florida International University in 2019. Dr. Lorenzo’s research focuses on early intervention and the relation between parenting (including parenting practices and parental psychopathology) on early childhood social-emotional and behavioral problems. A secondary line of research is early childhood emotion development, including emotion expression, emotion regulation, and emotion socialization, as well as difficulties in early childhood prosocial behavior and disruptive behaviors. The goal of these research avenues is to aid in the early identification of at-risk children, with the ultimate goal of informing targeted early intervention efforts leveraging parents to improve children’s social-emotional outcomes.
