Research Overview

"The Social Stress Lab at the University of Rochester is currently accepting Ph.D. student applications to begin Fall 2021. Current lines of research in the lab focus on developing psychological interventions for optimizing acute stress responses in performance situations, examining the contextual and temporal dynamics of emotion regulation processes, understanding how interpersonal competition can produce divergent approach and avoidance oriented responses."


The primary focus of Dr. Jamieson's work seeks to understand how stress impacts decisions, emotions, and performance. He is particularly interested in using physiological indices of bodily and mental states to delve into the mechanisms underlying the effects of stress on downstream outcomes. Dr. Jamieson is also interested in studying emotion regulation. His research in this area demonstrates that altering appraisals of stress and anxiety can go a long ways towards improving physiological and cognitive outcomes.
