Research Interests


My research focuses broadly on how emotion impacts cognitive , social and physiological processes. I have been interested in affect as a mediator and calibrator of how we interact with the world, with the idea that emotion acts as a biasing factor in self-reaction, reactions to our social domains and cognitive organization. I am also interested in the impact of affect on physical health and functioning.
