Research Statement

The ability to regulate cognition, emotion, and behavior represents a core capacity of healthy human functioning. Examples of this ability in daily life include rebounding from mistakes, resisting distraction, and dampening negative emotions. It is these abilities that most intrigue me as a psychological scientist. I study them to 1) shed light on their underlying mechanisms and 2) examine their clinical significance in terms of their roles in the development, maintenance, and treatment of anxiety and depression. Through this two-pronged approach I aim to advance our knowledge of regulatory abilities across the range of normal to abnormal functioning. My work lies at the intersection of clinical, cognitive neuroscience, social-personality, and developmental research. I integrate across these areas both in terms of the types of questions I ask and in the methods I use to address them. I bring together experimental and correlational designs using a multi-method framework to examine how phenomena play out across different levels of analysis (explicit, implicit, behavioral, biological) and build integrative models of how they operate. See my lab website -- Clinical Psychophysiology Lab -- for more details.
