What I Do

As a social health psychologist, my overarching goal is to understand how stress accumulates across our lifespans to impact our health.

To advance this area of research, I take a psychoneuroimmunological perspective to investigate the biological mechanisms through which chronic activation of the stress-response system (e.g., bereavement, caregiving) can dysregulate the immune, autonomic, and endocrine systems to future physical or psychological stress.

Areas of Interest: Psychoneuroimmunology, Close Relationships and Health, Lifespan Development, Affective Science, Women's Health, Stress Interventions
