Research Interests 
Professor Zawadzki's research examines social psychological processes as applied to health with three overlapping research areas:
  • How do perseverative cognitions function as a mechanism to create and extend stress responses?
  • How does perceiving emotion in others affect decision making about them?
  • Can psychosocial interventions be developed to improve health and well-being?
