Research Summary:

I completed a B.S. in psychology from the University of Florida in 1995, my Ph.D. in Social Psychology from North Carolina State University in 2002, and completed a Post-Doc in Cognitive Psychology at Duke University. My primary research interest is coping with trauma, with an emphasis on autobiographical memory. We focus on three primary areas of trauma: 1) perceptions of posttraumatic growth (the idea that some trauma survivors grow in important ways as a result of going through adversarial events), 2) the etiology of PTSD, and 3) various coping strategies trauma survivors engage in and their impact on mental and physical well-being.
