My research focuses on understanding and treatment of social anxiety, depression, and PTSD. I take a multi-method approach by measuring phenomenological, linguistic, cognitive, behavioral, and biological indices of emotional responses to stimuli and events connoting the loss of affiliation or social status.
I am also interested in developing and testing effective treatments, and understanding the mechanisms behind their effectiveness.
