Professional Interests

For groups to function effectively, their members need some way of organizing and managing the hierarchies that inevitably emerge, as well as finding ways to cope with conflicts when they arise. For individual decision makers to function effectively, they need to know when to take appropriate risks, how to regulate their own emotions, and how to read others around them. My work addresses these social and individual challenges. A signature of my own approach is to draw on and integrate multiple levels of analysis, including psychophysiology, behavioral observation, cognitive processes, as well as more traditional methods such as self and other reports.
