Sara Weston

Lab Alum

Sara graduated from the PMaD Lab in May 2017 and is currently a postdoctoral research fellow at Northwestern University, studying the relationship between personality and health.

Sara Weston began her graduate studies in the fall of 2012. She studies the relationship between personality and health. Her research has shown that personality traits can serve as risk factors for developing chronic disease, and that traits may predict behavioral response to health problems. She is currently interested in studying the short- and long-term behavioral responses to health events. Her other research interests include using different ways to assess individual differences in affect (e.g., dynamics, within-person structure) to better investigate the roles of neuroticism and extraversion in health outcomes.
