My broad research interests are in emotion and psychopathology, with a particular emphasis on schizophrenia and depression. One ongoing study is examining emotional responding in women with schizophrenia. A second major focus of my research is on the origins and consequences of individual differences in emotional expressivity. Ongoing studies seek to answer questions such as under what circumstances and in the presence of what individuals might men and women differ in the expression of specific emotions; how social context modifies dispositional expressive tendencies, and the ways in which men and women use emotion to negotiate status and power differences.
