My contribution to the psychological literature has included the development of instruments for assessing what most people would label as minor daily annoyances (e.g., driving in heavy traffic, arguing with a co-worker) and the demonstration that these events are associated with poor health outcomes and increases in high risk health behaviors.
I am currently funded by two NIH grants. One of the grants, on which I am Co-Principal Investigator, involves translational research, i.e., adapting methods shown to be effective for weight loss in clinical trials for use in general medical clinics. I am the Principal Investigator on the other grant which compares personal counseling techniques versus internet based interventions for maintaining dietary and exercise adherence in adults who have lost weight.
