I was trained as an experimental social psychologist but my research has involved the use of multiple methodologies including laboratory studies, longitudinal survey studies, and daily diary studies. My primary research interests are in the area of behavioral health, in particular (1) the relationship of substance use and misuse to aggression, relationship conflict, and social functioning and (2) psychological and social variables that influence quality of life among people with chronic medical disorders (IBS, cardiac arrhythmia etc).
