I am a third-year Ph.D. student in psychological sciences, with an emphasis in health psychology. My research focuses on psychological and biological aspects of stress, health outcomes related to these processes, and how lifestyle/health-related behaviors, especially physical activity and sleep, impact these relationships across populations. I am the lab manager of the SHARPP Lab. Currently, one of my projects focuses on conducting a review of the literature on the Salutogenic Model of Health (one of the leading stress coping models) and physical activity to understand how physical activity may fit within the larger model. Furthermore, I am working on a book chapter that will be published in the book titled “Self-regulation and Motivation in Sport and Exercise”. My chapter focuses intervention planning, implementation, and action planning as strategies to promote physical activity in interventions. Finally, I will be collecting data this fall to examine the sense of coherence, a major facet of the Salutogenic Model of Health, in an ethnically diverse university population as it relates to objective sleep and physical activity data, measured with FitBit technology.
