Research Interests

My research focuses how bodily states like physical pain and emotion impact perceptual processes (such as the perception of space and time). I conduct research with chronic pain populations, healthy participants, athletes, and other populations that experience pain. I believe both laboratory and field research complement each other in further understanding the processes I study. I also have an interest in quantitative methods and how statistics underly our science and how they can be most effectively used to understand human cognition and behavior.
