Iris Mauss received a Ph.D. in Psychology from Stanford University, and is now an assistant professor of psychology at the University of California, Berkeley. Her research focuses on emotions and emotion regulation, and utilizes a multi-method approach including experience sampling, behavioral coding, implicit measures, and measures of autonomic physiological responses. Her work addresses questions concerning coherence versus dissociation of emotional response systems, the sociocultural context of emotion regulation, the implications of emotion regulation for psychological and physical health, and automatic processes in emotion regulation.
