    Amie M. Gordon, PhD is a Research Scientist working in the Emotion, Health, and Psychophysiology Lab. She draws upon social, personality, and health psychology to investigate the processes that influence health and well-being. Her research approaches health and well-being through an interpersonal lens, exploring the interplay between social-cognitive, affective, and biological factors that shape interpersonal experiences. Much of her recent work is focused on understanding the links between basic biological processes, such as sleep, and complex social processes. She utilizes a variety of methods in her research, including naturalistic daily experience and observational methods, experiments, field studies, and psychophysiology.

    Amie is currently the Principal Research Scientist on a big data project on stress, well-being, and blood pressure in daily life conducted in collaboration with Samsung and Sage Bionetworks.

    Amie’s research has been published in top academic journals including the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, Psychological Science, and Current Directions in Psychological Science as well as featured in popular news outlets such as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Business Insider and The Atlantic.
