Curriculum Vitae

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 experiences of stress impact decisions, emotions, and performance, and how stress responses can be optimized to promote resilience in the face of stressors. He is particularly interested in studying stress regulation across multiple  contexts, including academic achievement, dyadic interactions, and competition to name a few. To understand in vivo stress processes, Dr. Jamieson's research frequently relies on assessing physiological responses, with a focus on autonomic and neuroendocrine measures.
