Areas of Interest

I study Positive Psychology, an area of Psychology focused on well-being and character strengths (e.g., kindness, humility, gratefulness, perseverance). Some of my studies have focused on character strengths or well-being among people in difficult circumstances (homeless, bereaved). I also have expertise in violence research; I am currently studying the social and character strengths that keep kids away from violence. In the past, I have conducted research on culture, including cultural influences on learning styles and cultural influences on responses to stress.
