Grants and Research Projects

Three broadly defined areas – and the integration between them – comprise my research program: (1) What are the effects of experiencing stress on psychological and physical well-being? (2) Can we assess stress, affect, and health in an ecologically relevant manner that facilitates our understanding of biopsychosocial processes as they unfold in time and in context? (3) Can psychosocial interventions improve health and well-being?
