My research examines how our experiences "get under the skin" via stress and affects our health, physical and mental. Although chronic stress can be detrimental on the body and mind, acute or manageable stress improves our cognitive, emotional, mental and physical functioning. We attempt to understand how acute, healthy stress becomes derailed and toxic as well as investigate innate individual differences that buffer or behavioral interventions that inhibit or reverse the negative effects of chronic stress.

Potential research assistants or Honors students should check both my teaching and research websites for more information, including an application.
