Research

My primary interests include mechanisms implicated in the development, maintenance, and prognosis of posttraumatic stress disorder. In particular, I am interested in relationships between disgust- and contamination-based experiences that occur during and following traumatic events, and how these experiences relate to maladaptive posttraumatic cognitions and negative outcomes.
