Research Experience

Ohio University

2014-present    Psychosocial Processes and Health Lab    Dr. Peggy Zoccola
Investigating the effects of mindfulness meditation on attention, rumination, and the neuroendocrine response. Found that dispositional mindlessness accentuates cortisol reactivity and may improves recovery to acute stressors in the absence of post-task rumination using archival datasets. Conducted experiments to investigate the effects of mindfulness on inhibition of irrelevant information, rumination, and working memory. Collaborated with team of graduate students to examine the diurnal cortisol patterns among sexual minority young adults. Supervision and training of 10-15 undergraduate students.

Montana State University

2012-2014    Persuasion and Affect Lab    Dr. Ian Handley
Investigated boundary conditions (including limited decision time, and cognitive load at the time of judgment rendering) of the unconscious thought effect. Demonstrated a plausible benefit of unconscious thinking as a medical decision aid. Found that the quality of decisions reached unconsciously is not affected by the amount of cognitive load participants experienced. Participated in the creation of an experiment with team of graduate students to investigate the efficiency of unconscious thought in solving complex logic problems. Conducted an experiment focusing on the effect of incentive on unconscious thought processes. Investigated the influence of individual differences on access to unconscious thought outputs and developed medically oriented decision task stimuli.

2013-2014    Development of Mind and Emotion Lab    Dr. Becky Brooker
Programmed an oddball task on Presentation NBS® as part of a project with Dr. Matthew Vess and Dr. Becky Brooker. Project focused on comparing preference ratings obtained from IAT and P300 (EEG) oddball measures.  Attained critical knowledge of EEG/ERP measures, including analysis methods for such measures and data collection protocols.

2013-2014    Existential and Self Processes Lab    Dr. Matthew Vess
Designed a Qualtrics experiment with Dr. Matthew Vess focusing on the perceptions of distance and its impact on predictions of Terror Management Theory.
