Biography

At the broadest level, my research interests fall under the umbrella of health and well-being. More specifically, I am interested in understanding the psychological factors and qualities that may confer risk or resilience for physical health and well-being related outcomes through their links to self-regulation, emotions, and temporal orientations. The outcomes I study range from stress and health behaviours, to physical illness symptoms, chronic illness, and the treatment-related behaviours people engage in to manage their physical health. My work draws upon several theoretical perspectives to address these issues including classic social cognition models of health behavior change, and my own recently developed Self-regulation resource model which links affective states to temporal orientations for understanding when and why people may be more or less effective at regulating their behavior.
