I am interested in the
relationships between religious involvement and hard indicators of health and
disease such as all-cause and cause-specific mortality, and how these links
might be mediated by physiological or psychological effects. Also conducting
longitudinal work on how religious sentiments change across the lifespan and
how patterns of change might relate to health and well-being. Also have
active research programs on the "psychospiritual" constructs of forgiveness
