Sylvia Kreibig, Ph.D., is a Senior Research Scientist at the Department of Psychology at Stanford University. She earned her Ph.D. in Psychology with a focus on Affective Sciences from the University of Geneva, Switzerland under the direction of Drs. Klaus Scherer and Guido Gendolla and completed her postdoctoral training at Stanford University under the mentorship of Dr. James Gross. The overarching aim of her research is to better understand how emotions impact mental and physical health and how emotion regulation can be used to improve our health. Core facets of her research address the role of appraisals in generating and differentiating emotions and the use of cognitive reappraisal for regulating emotions. Sylvia uses psychophysiological and neuroimaging methods in her research. Sylvia has most recently become interested in exploring the role of emotion dysregulation (during wake time) in disorders expressed during sleep.
