General Research Areas

Social Psychology and Health

Current Research

I am broadly interested in the ways in which changes in identity and self affect outcomes in health and illness.  I am particularly interested in mental health and illness, rare and complex diseases, and bioethical issues surrounding healthcare delivery.  By taking a constructive-developmental approach, I aim to add nuance and complexity to existing social psychological paradigms.  I am also the host of The Adaptive Edge Podcast, which brings the latest research in psychology and neuroscience to people's everyday life.
