Bio

I conduct both research and applied work in the field of Sport & Exercise Psychology. I am interested in using sport/physical activity settings as a means to help teach positive life skills to youth & to foster a continued interest in physical activity in order to help optimize the health and well-being of participants of all skill levels.

 

Research Interests
My research investigates stress and motivation in response to the motivational climate fostered by leaders in physical activity settings. Specifically, I examine how caring, task-involving (mastery-focused) climates vs. ego-involving (winning-focused) climates impact psychophysiological stress responses including inflammation and cortisol fluctuations, along with indicators of well-being and motivation.
