My research focuses on how implicit beliefs about emotion, specifically whether emotion is malleable or fixed, influence how individuals regulate their emotions in the moment. Specifically, I have examined how subtly manipulating these implicit emotion beliefs then influences the strategies individuals use to regulate their negative emotions and social stress and ultimately how successful they are in these efforts. I am also interested in how these emotion beliefs operate within the context of psychiatric disorders that are characterized by emotion dysregulation, such as depression and generalized anxiety.
