Research

My research interests are in the area of emotion regulation. In particular, I study the cognitive costs of different emotion regulation strategies and how experience with different strategies may modulate those costs. I am also interested in the variables that influence people’s choices of emotion regulation strategies, and how we can facilitate adaptive emotion regulation choices, both in the laboratory and in everyday life. Currently, I am collaborating with Dr. El Miligi in computer science to develop a mobile app to assess emotion regulation choices in real-world settings.
