(2013, Clinical Concentration)
Executive Director at the UCSD Center for Mindfulness and Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology at UCSD
My core goals are directed at delineating the brain mechanisms that mediate the relationship between self-regulation and health. Specifically, my research is focused on determining the brain mechanisms associated with mindfulness meditation-related pain relief and health promotion.
Impressions and Experiences in the Health Psychology Program:
My tenure at UNCC’s Department of Psychology was a wonderful experience. The educational standards provided me a comprehensive approach and understanding of the intersection between behavior and health. I was also highly encouraged by my mentors to fully pursue my research interests and goals with the highest level of mentoring to facilitate my development as a researcher.
