Research Interests

One of Dr. Myers’s favorite things to do is research, from testing her own hypotheses, to teaching students about it in the classroom, to mentoring students with their own projects that they then take to research conferences and/or submit for publication. Dr. Myers’s research interests are primarily those related to stress, emotions, and health. Much of her past research has focused on factors such as personality, gender, and coping strategies that affect cardiovascular responses to anger and stress. Some representative projects include the studies investigating yoga and mindfulness meditation for anger management, a study on the effects of loneliness, social support, and mental health on drug use behaviors, and a study of how one’s gender, gender role identity, and personality affects stress and coping behaviors. Her secondary research area involves the scholarship of teaching and learning. For example, one project examined factors non-IQ related factors related to non-traditional college student success while another project examined personality and cognitive variables related to extra credit completion.
