In my courses and in research experiences I hope to foster critical thinking and intellectual curiosity in my students. I am particularly interested in engaging students in research experiences to expand and apply their knowledge of psychology.

My primary research interest involves using multiple physiological (central and peripheral) and behavioral measures to example developmental changes in emotion regulation over the lifespan. That is how physiological responses to emotional events or information change over the lifespan. My research seeks to identify what responses characterize adaptive (skilled) or maladaptive regulation in young children through older adulthood.
Students who are interested in becoming a research assistant or conducting independent research should contact me via email.
