I am an Assistant Professor at Eastern Michigan University in the Department of Psychology where I teach statistics and research methods. My research centers around the regulation of affect in face-to-face interactions and the consequences of sleep disturbances on daytime functioning.
The goal of my research is to better understand how expressing, perceiving, and regulating emotions during conversations shows continuity and change across the lifespan. Along with longterm development, I study the relation between sleep disruption and variability in regulation (affect, attention, behavior). To do this, I gather data using experimental methods from computer science, observational assessments, and questionnaires. Because much of my research concerns dyads as well as information on multiple time-scales, I draw on a variety of statistical methods that range from multiple regression, mixed effects models, structural equation models, and latent differential equation models.
