Emily Lindsay is a research professor in psychology at the University of Pittsburgh. Her theory-driven work shows that mindfulness interventions improve health outcomes via stress buffering pathways and that acceptance training is a key component of mindfulness interventions that drives these effects. Her current work examines whether mindfulness interventions impact stress responding in ways that offset health risk among people exposed to early life adversity. Long-term, she hopes to contribute to the goal of addressing inequities in public health. Emily completed her PhD in social/health psychology at Carnegie Mellon University and postdoctoral training in psychoneuroimmunology at Pitt.
