Emily Lindsay is a doctoral student in Social & Health Psychology at Carnegie Mellon University. Broadly, she is interested in studying pathways linking stress and health outcomes from a dual-process perspective. First, she is developing behavioral methods for studying implicit cognitive processes that prolong stress reactivity. Second, she is curious how explicit self-regulatory processes, like mindfulness meditation training, may change these implicit processes to buffer stress responding. Lindsay is currently involved in several studies investigating psychological and biological markers of stress responding after brief mindfulness meditation training, with the hopes of clarifying the process through which mindfulness practice buffers stress responding.
