    My research goals include: 1) identifying psychobiological causes and consequences of traumatic stress symptoms; 2) utilizing fear conditioning and extinction models to better understand PTSD; 3) characterizing sex differences in the biology of PTSD; 4) improving measurement techniques in the laboratory and the field such as with mobile health devices; and 5) conducting research that will inform novel interventions for ameliorating prolonged PTSD responses.
