I have been involved in a number of research projects on personality and affect regulation. During the past 2 decades research from a variety of fields has generated growing interest in the development of affect regulation and in the consequences for personality development, psychopathology and wellness when there are deficits in these abilities. I am particularly interested in studying the relationship between constructs like alexithymia and emotional intelligence and various outcome variables (particularly academic achievement, leadership, and various mental and physical health problems). Another longstanding research interest involves work on psychometric tools for assessing constructs like alexithymia and emotional intelligence.
