Research Interests & Collaborators

I have two primary research interests. First, I am interested in the biopsychosocial underpinnings of the relationships between stress and health/well-being. Specifically, I am interested in how stress-related fluctuations in hormones and negative affect impact health and health-related behaviors (e.g, substance use). Second, I am interested in statistical methods to evaluate change over time. Specifically, I am interested in identifying methods to evaluate linear and nonlinear trends in intensive longitudinal data (e.g., multilevel models, latent variable models, Bayesian and frequentist methods). My primary collaborations are with Joshua Smyth and Michael Russell.
