Research Interests:
Dr. Yaroslavsky is interested in the role of the autonomic nervous system in emotion regulation outcomes and depression risk. Specifically, he is interested in understanding how people¿s efforts to change the way they feel are influenced by their physiological states and interpersonal environments, and contribute to depression risk. He aims to explore these relationships in adults, adolescents, and within families (both in the laboratory and in people's everyday lives) in the hopes of elucidating the mechanisms by which depression risk is transmitted.

Dr. Yaroslavsky is interested in examining these links using advanced quantitative approaches (i.e., multi-level, latent variable, and general mixture models) within a developmental psychopathology framework across adolescence through emerging adulthood, a period marked by a sharply increased risk for depression.
