People—Jeremy P. Jamieson

Dr. Jamieson's research focuses on social stress and decision making, emotion regulation, and risk and uncertainty.

Research Interests

The primary focus of Dr. Jamieson's work seeks to understand how stress impacts decisions, emotions, and performance. He is particularly interested in using physiological indices of bodily and mental states to delve into the mechanisms underlying the effects of stress on downstream outcomes. Dr. Jamieson is also interested in studying emotion regulation. His research in this area demonstrates that altering appraisals of stress and anxiety can go a long ways towards improving physiological and cognitive outcomes.
