Research Interests

Brian Rabian is interested in the identification of early risk factors for the development of psychopathology in children. Specifically, his research has focused on the role that cognitive factors, such as anxiety sensitivity, play in the onset of anxiety problems, and the development of prevention efforts to preempt this onset. His current research interests include examination of the relationship between early sleep hygiene and later emotional, social, and academic outcomes, for which he received NSF funding.
