Our emotions color our experiences in ways that are shifting, fluid, and context dependent. In my research, I study how, when, and why our momentary feelings can shape fundamental processes like sensory perception, social functioning, and physical health.

I am a research fellow in Health Psychology at UC San Francisco. My training is in affective science and is informed by social psychology, cognitive science, developmental psychology, and neuroanatomy. I study individuals and dyads using multiple methods (including behavioral, dyadic, and psychophysiological) and statistical approaches (including meta-analysis, multi-level modeling, and pattern classification).

How are feelings represented in the body?
