Research Interests

My research interests are focused on factors that promote well-being. My most recent work has examined how the process of mindful awareness could enhance our ability to be more empathic, grateful, and forgiving, which are all factors that are very important in promoting happiness. I am also interested in how people learn and grow from weathering aversive events.
