Psychological and Brain Sciences | Entering Year: 2016



Daphne is a graduate student in the clinical psychology doctoral program at Washington University in St. Louis. Daphne’s research centers around emotion regulation, psychopathology, and interpersonal relationships. Specifically, Daphne is interested in investigating how individuals with mood and anxiety disorders regulate emotions differently from those without psychopathologies. She also conducts research in interpersonal emotion regulation, how people regulate their own and others’ emotions in social settings (e.g., how spouses regulate each other’s emotions), in both laboratory and naturalistic settings. Daphne received a B.S. in psychology from UC San Diego in 2015 and worked as a clinical research assistant at the VA in San Diego before moving to St. Louis.
