Research Overview

My research interests include how competition can affect stress, well-being, and transitions to new environments. Specifically, I am currently focusing on how reappraisals of stress within a competitive academic environment can improve performance, yield positive physiological effects, and influence motivational attitudes, goals, and competence.
