Research Interests

Kayla is interested in research on families who have used non-traditional methods to add children to their families, including both adoptive families and families who have conceived children using assisted reproductive technologies. In particular, she is interested in the interplay of family interactions and child adjustment in these family forms. Kayla also has a strong interest in quantitative research methodology and statistical methods, with an interest in teaching research methods.
