Nicole Giuliani, Ph.D.

Postdoctoral Researcher

Nicole Giuliani is a post-doc working with Elliot Berkman and Jennifer Pfeifer in the Psychology Department at the University of Oregon. Dr. Giuliani’s research interests center around how we change our feelings in service of psychological and physical health. She is particularly interested in novel applications of cognitive reappraisal, integrating neural (functional and structural MRI), behavioral, and real-world methodological approaches, and understanding the developmental trajectories of adaptive emotion regulation. She received her PhD in 2011 from Stanford University.
