Research Interests

I am a social psychophysiologist who studies interpersonal interactions. My primary research interests focus on understanding the interpersonal processes that promote and detract from the health and wellbeing of underrepresented groups, with an emphasis on Indigenous people. To target these goals, I use ecologically valid methods (e.g., community-based research, field studies, as well as psychophysiological, dyadic, and group-based designs), advanced statistics (e.g., structural equation modeling, multilevel modelling), and open science practices (e.g., pre-registrations, pre-print, data and code sharing). My aim is to understand the combination of subjective, behavioral, physiological, and social factors that support harmonious interpersonal relationships in diverse societies and to help underrepresented groups live safer, healthier, and happier lives.
