Graduate Student

The department of psychology at Rice University is launching a Ph.D. program in affective neuroscience (health emphasis).  My lab is accepting Ph.D. students this year.  We are dedicated to understanding the biobehavioral mechanisms underlying psychological and physical health disparities. As a team, we are interested in how stressful life events such as cancer, marriage, and bereavement affect one’s autonomic, neuroendocrine, and immune systems.

Rice University is a private research university located on a 295-acre (1.19 km2) campus in Houston, Texas, United States.
