My research interests focus on determining the brain mechanisms that mediate the relationship between self-regulatory processes and health.
I am currently employing neuroimaging methodologies to investigate brain mechanisms a) supporting the modulation of pain by mindfulness meditation and other cognitive techniques and b) associated with processing the relationship between expectation, beliefs, and executive-level cognitive processes on the subjective experience of pain.
Other ongoing research projects include assessing the brain regions involved in meditation-related anxiety relief and other health outcomes.
