Tammy Barry, Ph.D.

Associate Professor, Department of Psychology

Dr. Tammy Barry directs and conducts research in the Child Externalizing Behaviors Lab in the Department of Psychology. Our research focuses on biologically-based and contextual correlates of child externalizing behaviors. Behaviors/disorders studied include ADHD, oppositional-defiant/conduct disorders, and aggression as well as the disruptive behaviors associated with autism. Factors examined in our research include neuropsychological functioning/endophenotypes, child temperament, parental psychopathology/stress, parenting practices, SES/neighborhood characteristics, and individual difference factors (e.g., narcissism and psychopathy), among other variables. Our research also focuses on the measurement and latent structure of externalizing behavior disorders, such as ADHD and oppositional defiant disorder.
