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.

The Psychology Department is very pleased to announce that an all-gender, ADA accessible, family-friendly restroom has been built on the first floor next to the elevators. The department partnered with F&S to construct this new restroom, which is now available to use. Please note that there is an indicator on the door showing whether the restroom is available or in use. Be sure to lock the door while using the restroom, and unlock the door before leaving.
