Dr. Thompson’s research centers on understanding the everyday emotional experience in individuals diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder. She uses multi-method approaches, including ecological momentary assessment, to examine affective instability and other temporal dynamics of emotional experience. She is also interested in how components of emotion regulation (e.g., emotional awareness) and interpersonal factors (e.g., perceived rejection) affect the emotional experience of depressed, anxious, and healthy samples.
