Primary Research and Clinical Interests
Dr. Tiberio is a methodologist and quantitative psychologist with primary research interests in longitudinal data analysis — or the modeling of how processes change over time. In particular, she is interested in time-dynamic transactional models, which apply concepts of self- and co-regulation to understand the uni- and bi-directional relationships within and between processes.
Dr. Tiberio’s substantive research interests predominately 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. Dr. Tiberio is particularly interested in violence prevention, and identifying risk and protective factors of violent and antisocial behaviors.
