Dr. Nicole Guilani

Nicole Giuliani, Ph.D. is Evergreen Assistant Professor of School Psychology in the Special Education and Clinical Sciences Department. She is also faculty in the Prevention Science Graduate Program. Prior to joining the faculty at the University of Oregon, Dr. Giuliani earned her Ph.D. at Stanford University, after which she worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the Psychology Department at UO. 

Dr. Giuliani’s training is in affective science, the study of emotions, moods, and stress. In her work, she focuses on how people regulate their own affect (known as self-regulation), how self-regulation is associated with health behaviors (e.g., eating unhealthy food), and how that process is learned from parents in early childhood. She and her graduate students use many different methods to study these and other related topics, including laboratory tasks, surveys, coding of observed behaviors, salivary hormones, and brain imaging.
