Graduate Training
Research Interests

After completing a BA in Psychology from UCLA, I worked for two years as a research assistant in Dr. Shelley Taylor's lab and subsequently applied to Dr. Suzanne Segerstrom's lab to pursue my research aspirations. My research focuses on the psychosocial resources that allow older adults to manage pain and fatigue, and in the psychological, social, and biological consequences of not being able to appropriately manage pain (see links below for access to my publications). My clinical training involves working with chronic orofacial pain, fibromyalgia, and chronic lower back pain populations, among others.When I am not reading or writing about pain, I enjoy spending time with my wife, cooking, traveling, playing soccer/tennis, and hiking. For a complete list of my publications, please see the following sites:
