Epel will also present a lecture for students titled "Survive & Thrive! Making Stress Work for You" at noon in the BLUU Auditorium.


Epel is a health psychology researcher who investigates the depths and intricacies of the mind-body connection. In particular, she has studied how processes related to psychological stress and meditation-based interventions affect cellular-based measures of aging. Epel also has studied mechanisms of how stress affects eating behavior and metabolism. She has been particularly interested in the automaticity of eating, and how intertwined eating is with our emotional life, and how it can become compulsive.

Epel earned her bachelor’s degree in psychology from Stanford University and her doctorate in health psychology from Yale University. Her research publications may be found at www.chc.ucsf.edu/ame%5Flab/. />
