Humans share the feeling of heart hurt when they are emotionally sad. How do we feel and think with heart? How does the heart interact with our cognitive and affective states? Health psychology and biological psychology make it possible to explore these questions. Using a combination of questionnaire, psychophysical testing, and physiological recording, I am working on: 1) The properties of heart rate variability (HRV). 2) The extent to which HRV is related to stress; its influence on health behaviors. I am also interested in the interplays between depression, anxiety, and related psychological characteristics and chronic inflammatory diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases and type 2 diabetes.​
