Sara Waters

Sara received her PhD in Human Development from the University of California, Davis where she studied the dyadic nature of emotion regulation socialization in mothers and young children. Her general interests lie in early emotional development and stress reactivity within the parent-child relationship. Her current research explores how physiological stress reactivity is transmitted between mothers and their children, dyadic physiological linkage, and the individual characteristics that may affect these processes.
