Tessa McNaboe is a Global Fellow at NYU Abu Dhabi. Tessa is interested in understanding families' coping strategies amidst stress and crisis. Recognizing that well-being is a multidimensional term, she uses multiple methods of data acquisition, including both quantitative and qualitative approaches and more specifically, psychophysiological measures, to explore processes "under the skin." She is also interested in early childhood creativity and imagination and how these constructs leverage psychological resiliency.
