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), particularly as it relates to parent-toddler interactions.
