Broadly, I am interested in translational neuroscience approaches to studying mechanisms of self-regulation in an effort to bridge the gap between basic neuroscience and real-world health outcomes. I have particular interests in both the role of self and identity in behavior change and individual differences related to self-regulation ability that would allow clinicians to tailor interventions to the unique needs and goals of different individuals (e.g. a precision medicine approach). As part of my graduate work, I hope to explore moderators of success/failure in self-regulation training programs as well as training-related neural and biobehavioral factors that elucidate mechanisms of change in health-risk behaviors.
