Arwen is a second year graduate student in the Clinical Child Psychology Program.  She graduated with a B.A. in Psychology from Emory University in 2012 and conducted research at Pennington Biomedical Research Center prior to joining the CCPP in 2015.  Broadly, she is interested in how pediatric health behaviors impact the development of poor psychosocial outcomes and psychopathology.  She hopes to explore relationships between physical activity and emotional stability, and to test the effectiveness of incorporating physical activity into empirically supported treatments for childhood depression and anxiety.
