The Affective & Cognitive Regulation (ACR) Lab integrates basic and applied perspectives to understand how people adapt to the cognitive demands present in real-world contexts and what works for whom. We conduct this work in two different kinds of contexts – human-technology interactions and socioemotionally stressful situations. The ACR lab is also interested in evidence-based interventions and utilizing technology to facilitate healthy self-regulation, psychological well-being, and performance.

Research at the ACR lab is based on an interdisciplinary foundation that leverages multimodal assessment methodologies including behavioral (e.g., eye-tracking and human performance), psychophysiological (e.g., cardiovascular activity and electroencephalography), and self-report (e.g., experience sampling) measures.
