Personal profile

Research Interests

I am a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Medical Social Sciences at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. I received my PhD in Social Psychology from Northwestern University and completed a National Science Foundation Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Medical Social Sciences at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine.

My program of research investigates the factors that promote psychological adjustment in the context of serious life stress, particularly health-related stress. My current research centers on the following four areas: 1) how positive psychological interventions can buffer stress across a range of life stressors, 2) the predictors and consequences of stress-related growth in couples after a major life event, 3) how people structure and navigate their social networks for emotion regulation, and 4) the development of burnout prevention interventions for physicians and medical trainees.
