Jeffrey D. Burke, Ph.D. – Lab Director
Dr. Burke’s interests involve understanding the etiology, developmental course and outcomes related to oppositional defiant disorder, conduct disorder and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. His work includes a focus on irritability as a component of oppositional defiant disorder, which raises the risk for the development of depression and anxiety in some people. Dr. Burke also studies factors related to service engagement and treatment outcomes for the disruptive behavior disorders. Dr. Burke’s work often involves the application of statistical models appropriate for count data, for modeling clustered and nested observations, and for measuring latent classification and latent growth processes.
