Benjamin L. Hankin, Ph.D research takes a developmental psychopathological approach to understand risk factors and mechanisms in depression and related internalizing emotional disorders, especially in children and adolescents. He is also interested in translating knowledge on vulnerability into evidence-based assessment and interventions. Presently, he and his colleagues have grant-funded research investigating: 1) personalized depression prevention among adolescents, 2) neural and behavioral levels of analysis underlying selection and cognitive control in adolescents, and 3) reducing depression among depressed pregnant women to then study the effects of reducing the development of risk mechanisms contributing to psychopathology in baby offspring.
