Research Description

My research is interested in answering the question why people engage in behaviors that may have short-term benefits (e.g. temporary relief from painful emotions) but have long-term negative consequences (e.g., problems in interpersonal relationships, physical health problems).  I am particularly interested in the role that emotions play in the onset and continuance of these behaviors. To date, my  research has focused on the behaviors of nonsuicidal self-injury, aggression, and substance use.

Parking Garage Update

The two parking garages have been evaluated and no structural issues were found. The problem is just in the exterior brickwork. These problems will be addressed and the garages reopened by the start of classes, although some work will continue into the fall semester.
