Current Research Interests

I am a member of the Involuntary Pregnancy Loss Collaborative.  The IPL Collaborative’s research agenda seeks to examine the effect of involuntary pregnancy loss on women and their partners. Our current project is an online survey about the grief, coping, and relationship experiences of women who have experienced a pregnancy loss as well as how they perceive the grief and coping of their partners. In January 2018, the IPL Collaborative received the Ray L. Taylor Memorial Award to help fund this research.  

My primary research focus is on stress and coping. With the IPL Collaborative, I am focused on how women cope with their pregnancy loss experience and how they perceive their partner copes. My other current stress and coping research is examining the effect of a brief, daily stress reduction program on stress reactivity among college students.

My other research focus is on motivating undergraduate students to get involved in independent research. Previous projects have focused on what students self-report would motivate them to participate in undergraduate research and an examination of a program that paired undergraduate students with graduate students to collaboratively engage in advocacy research.
