Research Interests:
My major research interest lies in measuring emotional regulation processes using experimental paradigms. More specifically, I have tried to apply priming techniques to measure emotional regulation abilities. I, as an industrial/organizational psychologist, am also interested in emotional labor and other emotion related issues in working organizations. Another topic I have worked on is the development of a valid measure of procrastination for both students and work samples.

Opportunities for student research involvement:
Both undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in any of the topics above are always welcome.
