Dr. Dickerson's research integrates psychological and biological levels of analysis by applying theories of social and emotional processes to the context of stress and disease. She examines how social-evaluative threat and accompanying self-conscious emotional responses affect physiological outcomes, and how individual differences may heighten vulnerability to these psychological and physiological changes.
