Research Interests

My research concerns the ways in which people think, about themselves and the world, and how these ways of thinking can influence mood (particularly, depression and anxiety). Two aspects of the cognitive process that my research highlights is how people attribute causes to events in their lives (i.e., explanatory style and flexibility) and the accuracy of this process (i.e., depressive realism).
