Research Interests: My research interests focus broadly on health outcomes, stress and resilience, and interoception. I am interested in interventions for behavioral change to promote positive health behaviors, such as exercise, mindfulness practices, and medication adherence. I also seek to investigate how factors such as interoceptive ability can mediate stress and aging, and whether interventions such as physical activity and meditation can strengthen interoception sensibility and sensitivity.
Fun Fact: My goal is to visit every U.S. National Park.
