I am excited to be moving into a new position in Physiological Psychology and Behavioral Neuroscience-a bit back to my roots from the Brandeis Center for Neuroscience and the Wingfield lab.
My research interests include:
-Social psychophysiological responses to stress, intergroup interactions, discrimination, stigma, and related appraisal processes.
-Autonomic nervous system and neuroendocrine monitoring on health outcomes.
-Social class and health disparities, etiology and epidemiology of disease outcomes related to social processes.
-Social emotions (e.g., shame, pride, empathy) in shaping physiology, appraisal, and behavior (e.g., self-esteem, morality, relationship formation and maintenance).
-Mind-body interactions on resilience and health.
