    Personal profile

    Research interests

    Research Expertise: 
    Health Psychology | Integrative Medicine | Mindfulness & Stress

    My translational research program integrates basic science and behavioral medicine to better understand the link between being mindful, and being healthy. In addition to studying clinical outcomes of mindfulness training to reduce stress and stress-related symptoms, we also investigate the underlying mechanisms of mindfulness. These mechanisms include a number of biological and behavioral pathways, ranging from sleep patterns, to stress physiology and stress hormones, to emotion regulation, immune function, and gene expression – all of which are implicated in chronic disease risk.
