Research Interest:
I am interested in various self-regulatory processes and associated outcomes. Using fMRI, psychophysiology, and behavioral methods, I have studied language-based self-regulation of negative emotions such as fear and the long-term autonomic consequences of such regulation, as well as self-regulation of feelings associated with being treated unfairly. In my postdoctoral work with Dr. Edythe London,  I am currently studying self-regulation of craving and impulsivity related to smoking and drug abuse.
