Primary Research and Clinical Interests

Dr. Tiberio graduated from the University of Notre Dame’s Quantitative Psychology program in May of 2008 and has been working at the Oregon Social Learning Center (OSLC) since May 2010.

Methodologically, her primary research interests include longitudinal data analysis — or the modeling of how processes change over time. In particular, she is interested time-dynamic transactional models, which apply concepts self- and co-regulation to understand the uni- and bi-directional relationships within and between processes. These models, which fall into the broader category of state-space models, also afford some statistical advantages to handling the complications of time series data.

Her substantive research interests are broad but predominantly focus on gaining a better understanding of how individuals’ physical and mental health may be influenced by their own behaviors, the behaviors of those around them and their social contexts.

Collaborations with scientists at OSLC have entailed work in the areas of children’s weight development, parental monitoring, relationship dynamics, diurnal cortisol functioning, interpartner violence, delinquent and antisocial behavior, and substance use, abuse and dependence.
