I conduct research examining the role of human motivation in emotion and interpersonal regulation. My research lab is currently conducting studies to examine the role of motivation in carry-over effects of incidental emotions after a rejection paradigm, how people are influenced by both explicit arguments and implicit primes as a function of motivation, and the role of motivation in dyad collaborative decision-making. With my collaborators I am also exploring motivational components underlying the etiology of psychological disorders. Along with conducting research, I teach classes in social and personality psychology, clinical psychology, and experimental design. My clinical work is primarily characterized by short-term individual therapy and structured as well as process-oriented group work.
