Research Interests

My research efforts have concentrated on the evidence–based assessment and treatment of anxiety disorders. Most recently, my research has focused on the prevalence and treatment of anxiety in coronary heart disease (CHD). Ultimately, I hope to extend and refine treatment interventions to those individuals with CHD and anxiety.
