Short Biography

I conduct empirical research on social-mind-body issues as they apply symptom/health appraisal, stress and trauma, and health outcomes. My research often incorporates both psychological and biological measures and I have collected such somatic data as HbA1c, norepinephrine and epinephrine, heart rate variability, finger temperature, blood pressure, electrodermal activity, respiration rate, body postural and sway measures, and immunological parameters such as absolute lymphocyte, neutrophil, and monocyte counts.
