Personal profile

Research interests

Dr. Cordts’ research emphasizes the intersection of health behavior promotion and children’s outcomes. Applying a biopsychosocial lens, she explores factors that influence pediatric health, including chronic pain, sleep, and weight-related health, in both clinical and community samples.

Dr. Cordts’ current research lies in the prevention and intervention of pediatric chronic pain. Pulling from social learning theory and models of maternal depression, her research focuses on the intergenerational mechanisms implicated in the familial transmission of chronic pain. Robust evidence supports the complex interplay of biological and social factors and highlights the need to systematically capture risk and resiliency processes, rather than examining at-risk or affected youth in isolation.

Dr. Cordts has a strong quantitative skillset to complement research interests and is familiar with a range of methodological approaches. She has expertise in structural equation modeling techniques, including growth mixture modeling.
