My primary research interests focus on two areas. The first involves personality and psychosocial factors as predictors of health and mortality risk, as well as the pathways that they take. The second addresses clinician-patient relationships-- partnering, health communication, and so on; and their associations with medical outcomes such as adherence, satisfaction, and physical health indicators. In particular I am interested in determining ways to tailor interventions to optimize patients' success as they make health-behavior changes and work toward health-related goals.

Primary Interests:

  • Communication, Language
  • Emotion, Mood, Affect
  • Gender Psychology
  • Health Psychology
  • Nonverbal Behavior
