I am broadly interested in the research on self-regulation, sleep, and behavioral and emotional health. My research program focuses on identifying the self-regulation processes that mediate or moderate the link between sleep and behavioral and mental health. My clinical research interests center on the evaluation of brief behavioral health interventions and ways of maximizing efficacy for individuals. I am also interested in research on evidence-based clinical teaching and supervision.
