Brandy Sky Martinez
Undergraduate institution: Florida International University
Research Interests: At the broadest level, Brandy examines stress and coping within an emotion regulation framework. Her current reserach investigates whether coping resources, such as mindfulness and Religion/Spirituality, protect against the negative effects of stress on health via emotion regulation. In particular, Brandy integrates experimental and longitudinal research methods to better understand how emotion regulation processes influence psychological stress to promote more optimal health and well-being outcomes across the adult lifespan.
